It seems WWE policy dictates that the company pays the rehab bills for former superstars, even if they are in rival promotions.

Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE had paid the bills for an Impact Wrestling star in the past, but they have not done the same for anyone in AEW yet. Meltzer mentioned the details while discussing Jon Moxley, who recently entered a rehab program.

"Yes, I think, even in fact, they would [pay for Moxley’s rehab] because that’s the nature of the policy. Because they have definitely paid for people when they’ve been in Impact. They haven’t paid for the rehab of anyone in AEW that I know of, but they have definitely paid for Impact, you know, which is a rival promotion," said Meltzer.
Jon Moxley has allowed me to share with you that he is entering an inpatient alcohol treatment program. Jon is a beloved member of the AEW family. We all stand with him and Renee, and all of his family and friends, as he shifts his focus to recovery.

Moxley has confirmed that he has decided to seek help with his alcohol addiction. Tony Khan shared an update stating that the beloved superstar is doing better every day. Moxley has received a lot of support from fans worldwide, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

WWE's recent dispute with Keith Lee over his claims about paying medical bills

Thank you for all the positivity that has been dropped on me the past few days as well as the birthday wishes. I love you. Worry not. We are not done. We work.#BaskInMyGlory #iAmLimitless

Former WWE superstar Keith Lee shared a lengthy post on his Twitter account in which he mentioned that he paid his medical bills out of his pocket. However, his former employers contested those claims.

The company released an official statement calling Lee's comments false. They insisted that he was part of WWE's extensive healthcare program that looks after its talent's well-being. WWE further said that Lee should contact the company if he has concerns over his medical bills.
