I have insurance with a third party and even Medicaid. I reside in New York, but the issue was I went to a hospital in New Jersey. After a year, sending them my insurance information about 5 times, they have sent my bills into collections. I cannot afford to pay for them.
I'm currently 21 years old, and I go to college at SUNY Oneonta. I can only afford to go because I was a foster kid for the last 11 years and I use grants and financial aid and have even taken out loans. I do not have enough money to pay for these medical bills. I do not have anywhere else to turn, and I am terrified of posting this as I don't want my abuser or close friends or even distant family to see my struggles, but I don't have a choice at this point. I need to find a way to pay for these bills without starving myself or losing my education.
If anyone can spare anything, it'll help. I have been in a constant state of financial difficulty my entire life, and have tried my hardest to avoid entering debt. This has been devastating for me, and I'm just trying to find a way out. Thank you to whoever reads this and donates or shares. Any help will go a long way for me.
