 in response to father of 2 kids...   Hello Morgan,
I hope this email is finding you well. There is a legitimate grant to pay off Hospital Bills, when you can't afford them...or at least a large percentage of the bill. My grandmother passed away from cancer; but during her hospital stay, she acquired 95 thousands dollars in bills. Well, the grant that my mother used to pay off 93 thousand dollars (left with only 2 thousand to pay) was called Hill Burton Grant. Read up on it via the Internet. The sad fact is that hospitals will not tell you about this grant, unless you ask about it. My mother was so distraught about the bills, that she simply asked a nurse was there anything they could do...and the nurse was honest and revealed this to her. What you don't know, can hurt you sometimes. Sincerely Keith

 in response to father of 2 kids...   Hi, Morgan
Here is an idea.
My parents had huge medical bills. They went to the hospital and filled out tons of paperwork and got them reduced very drastically, by proving they couldn't pay. The hospital paid them with grants or wrote them off as losses. I'm not exactly sure how they were able to do it, but there is a way. Of course, unless you investigate and dig, they won't offer.
If you think about it, there have to be lots of people who go through this each year and some way of the hospital handling it.
It is worth a shot, in my opinion.
I hope this will help you.

 in response to EBeth...   Wow, what a tough time for you! I have often wondered what it would be like to walk through breast cancer, mastectomies, and all that goes with it, since it seems to be so widespread these days. My heart goes out to you.
I'm not sure if this will help you, but my parents were able to get many of their medical expenses "written off" (not sure if this is the correct way of saying it) through the hospital, by filling out lots of paperwork and showing their income was insufficient to pay them.
You may want to call your hospital and ask if they have any way of doing this. They won't advertise it, but I believe many of them offer such options, if you talk to the right person.
What they did for my folks was reduce the cost to a very small fraction of the cost they were originally billed.
Please let me know if this works for you! I will send prayers up for you!

I had double mastectomies in August, 2011. I already have over $1300 in medical bills that my insurance won't pay. As of Jan. 1, 2012, I will have that much more + in unpaid medical bills. I live on a monthly pension, have rent, utilities, obligations to meet. Does anyone know where I might find help in paying these medical bills? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Hello im an 18 year old male, just graduated high school june 2 of this year. I am enrolling in the US navy, and want to persue my dreams. I have a terrible problem, I need to go to EMT for salivary gland lump. I am scared it could be cancer, but have no way of getting it checked out due to financial situations. This is really scaring me, and im not sure if i'll be able to ensure my dreams coming true of joining the US navy because of this problem. Any help would greatly be appreciated, because this will take all my stress away and make me feel alot better. This is the only thing i've been thinking about day and night for the past three months. Please, any help with this would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

 in response to Military Soldier...   Have you contacted Tricare to ask them?
You could also go to sick call & talk with the doctor on base about it as well (if you are active duty).
When I was in the military & had a question about something I called Tricare or went to sick call on base.

Best wishes
