However, Lisa is now stable in the ICU although her prognosis is yet to be determined and it certainly depends on the subsequent medical and rehabilitative care she receives. Lisa's medical insurance begins on January 1, 2021, which presents the need for this Go Fund Me. Your help and support are essential to lessening the burden of cost for medical care and rehabilitation services for Lisa.
Quality healthcare should not be a privilege of the few who can truly afford what it takes to restore health, yet sadly it is.
Expenses current or anticipated:
The average ICU stay costs in excess of $10, 000 for the first day; this drops down to about $4000 per day by the third day. (pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov ›)
Moving to a surgical bed drops the cost to about $1500 per day. The cost of doctors' care, medications, and therapies are additional to the daily bed rates. These costs easily can add up to over $10,000.
Additionally, Lisa will also lose income from her being off from work while recovering negatively impacting Lisa and Jeff's living situation. The need for support is both immediate and ongoing until Lisa's optimal health is restored.
