Nevada Revised Statutes Section 433A.640 - Mental Health

Parties responsible for payment of charges after court-ordered admission; investigation of ability to pay.

1. Once a court has ordered the admission of a person to a division facility, the administrative officer shall make an investigation, pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, to determine whether the person or his responsible relatives pursuant to NRS 433A.610 are capable of paying for all or a portion of the costs that will be incurred during the period of admission.

2. If a person is admitted to a division facility pursuant to a court order, that person and his responsible relatives are responsible for the payment of the actual cost of the treatment and services rendered during his admission to the division facility unless the investigation reveals that the person and his relatives are not capable of paying the full amount of the costs.
