Hand Injury Medical Bills

It's hard to ask for help and even harder to ask for financial assistance, but for all those messaging if there's something they can do, something that would truly be helpful is assistance towards medical bills.

For those who don't know, last Wednesday I had to break up a dog fight which ended in me having several injuries to my left hand: deep lacerations to multiple fingers, a tuft fracture to a fingertip, and a destroyed fingernail essentially. After seven hours in the ER with a plastic hand surgeon, I learned the ER I went to was in a hospital not covered by my insurance. Additionally, my marketplace insurance, if it does cover it, won't cover anything until after I pay my $7,000 deductible, after which they pay 50%. In addition to the ER visit, the x-rays, the IV meds and other prescriptions, and the procedure, I'm also looking at follow-up visits with specialists and possible physical therapy.

I am a full time seminary student and work part time at a church. My partner is also a full time grad student. We have incredible anxiety of how much this could cost, and any penny helps tremendously.
