  •  Can you apply for Financial Aid? (0+ / 0-)

    Some hospitals have a group, not in Billing, that receives appeals for financial aid.  A friend who is a young widow, had many bills after her husband's death from glioblastoma.  She successfully applied for financial aid and had substantial reductions in her remaining bills.

    I also have learned, once one hospital system agrees that financial aid is ok, other providers fall in line afterward.

    I know more work when you are sick.  Hope you can get help with this.

    I'm new here; lurking since before '08 election. I'll try to find something pithy from William Wilburforce.

    •  nope (0+ / 0-)

      even tho im disabled I make too much to qaulify
      go figure
      Right above the cutoff for aid
      Eli Lilly the pharma giant here in Indiana has a grant for the poor but you gotta make well below the poverty line to qaulify and Im just above it
      Many aid programs are like that
      alot fall in the cracks
