What Can You Do If You "Need" Surgery and Your Insurance Won't Cover It?
My daughter recently found out her gall bladder is not functioning. She is in a lot of pain and the doctor told her it has to come out.
Her doctor said he could do an out-patient procedure that is a small incision and she'd miss 2 weeks of work.
Or if needed they will do an in-patient procedure that is much more severe. Hospital stay 4 days and 6 weeks loss of work. But she has to come up with $2000 just to get in the hospital door. Yes, she does have insurance but it looks like it sucks.
Question is....what can she do to get a needed surgery with no money? None of us has anywhere near $2000 to get her in.
I suggested if push comes to shove and it has, that she should have a severe gb attack in the middle of the night and go the emergency room and I believe they have to take you. Isn't that how welfare and illegals do it that have no money?
