Help Briana Preserve Her Left Eye
My doctor recommended I receive a corneal transplant because if I don’t I am in danger of losing my left eye. This would need to be done no later than the first week of January.
Anthony and I are evaluating our options but it looks like I have no choice but to enroll in the Marketplace for health insurance. While I am thankful Obamacare has banned discriminating pre-existing conditions, the premium is beyond our budget and due to financial strain, we do not have the funds on hand to pay the deductible
We are looking at $313.52 per month for the premium, $1500 deductible (due on day of surgery), and a maximum of $3500 for out-of-pocket expenses. The rest will go to extra needs before insurance kicks in on January 1st and any additional expenses. The enrollment deadline is December 15th so it is vital for me to afford my premium to save my eye.
While this is not the news I wanted to hear, we are incredibly grateful that this is not life threatening and that we enjoy an immeasurably privileged life.
Anthony and I know that we need a miracle to pull through but God has provided before and He will provide again. Thank you for taking the time to pray and listen to our situation. You all mean so much to me. If you desire further clarification or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me a message . If you are uncomfortable with using your card online I would be more than happy to give you my mailing address.
Thank you in advance for the support you are providing us, especially for my health.
