Formula One legend Michael Schumacher's medical care bills have soared to the 1,00,000 Pounds-a-week mark including equipment rental and wage bills, according to media reports.
Schumacher, who went into a coma after smashing his heads into rocks while skiing at the French Alpine resort of Meribel on December 29 last year, is being trained by 24X7 medical experts who are trying to get him live a normal life.
The seven-time F1 world champion was treated in the Lausanne rehabilitation clinic in Switzerland after he suffered fatal injuries to his head last year. The same medical facility is now training experts who are taking care of Schumacher at his Lake Geneva home.
"A large part of the team that cares for Michael now was trained by our specialists. We are following his treatment and are still a point of contact and entirely at his disposal," a spokesman for the Lausanne clinic said.
Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm had denied last week that the F1 hero was now "significantly better". Schumacher is unable to move any of his body parts except the eyes and remains in a state of minimal consciousness.
The former Ferrari driver's wife Corinna and his family have not left his side since his disastrous skiing accident in France last year. Schumacher's children Mick, 15 and Gina-Marie, 17, spend many hours with the legend each day at his bedside.
