I'm sorry, I didn't explain that part very well. The $1300 was what my sister owe after her insurance pay the rest.
And the reason the doctors committed her was she was hearing voices & they thought she would hurt herself (even though she told them over & over she wasn't suicidal).
First of all I don't understand how they can say she have anziety because hearing voices seems like it would be something else. That's scary!!!
Second of all I don't know how they can ask her mother to pay $1300 for something she did not want and did not consent to. Plus they haul my niece out of town on top all that! (They say the place for teens with mental disorder in town was full, so my sister say she willbring her back n forth for like outpatient doctor visits but they said no, she has to be put in a hospital)
So I guess I have 2 main problems with this whole disaster - that after all that they decide she have anxiety & not something scary like schizaphrenic, and that they present us with a fat bill for them basiclly kidnapping her. Makes me so angry and I don't know what our legal rights are!
Oh! No, I have 3 problem. The third thing is that no doctor ever talk to my sister, they just let my niece out & said she could go home. What the hell????
(I know I sound a little crazy but this whole thing has just upset us so much)
