Once you have received the recommended plan of care and associated
Cost Estimate, the International Services Department will work
closely with you to:
- Verify insurance coverage and identify any restrictions,
limitations or copayments required.

The Letter of Guarantee or proof of insurance coverage must be
provided to the International Services Department at least 5 days
in advance of the child's first visit.
If no insurance coverage or sponsorship can be verified, the
Medical Services Cost Estimate must be paid in advance…
While at CMH you will be informed of any additional medical
costs. Arrangements for payment can be discussed with the
International Services staff.
All payments are expected to be made in U.S. dollars.
