I need help keeping my health insurance
My health insurance was suspended a couple months ago for non-payment (could not afford) and my account will be terminated at the end of this month and I will not be able to get insurance again until open enrollment next year.
I am 90% sure I have a kidney infection currently and need to go to the doctor as soon as possible, and my insurance will get unsuspended and I will be able to go to the doctor once I pay this so every bit helps me get closer to treating a potentially serious condition. Thank you.
I have some chronic health problems and need to be able to take medication and see doctors regularly, so this is a big deal. Incidentally, the reason I am prone to kidney infections is because of a bunch of botched surgeries I had. Wouldn't it be cool if I could go to the doctor and see what they could do to fix that? Yes, it would be cool.
I did have to go to the ER however, and due to the fact that I was rather delirious and exhausted while I was there, I was unable to make sure that they addressed all of my urgent medical issues. They discharged me without doing any examination or treatment related to serious, life threatening symptoms. As a result, I am going to have to return today. My ER copays are $150 and I had to pay for a $50 prescription yesterday.
I absolutely cannot afford any of this because I have been unable to work recently and cannot even afford rent. As a result, I've raised my goal to reflect the additional medical costs that I've incurred.
Again, thank you all. I would be in a far more dire situation now without all of your support.
