Check into state-sponsored insurance plans. If you're eligible financially they often are easier on pre-existing conditions. Try your state's .gov website. You can also talk to an individual doctor's practice and see if he will at least see you for doctor visits on a payment plan or sliding fee schedule. If you get prescriptions, the manufacturer's will often help with paying for it, and some counties are part of prescription discount plans. You can check with a pharmacy, usually the local ones are more knowledgable and helpful than the big chains. If you do end up with medical tests needed, hospital social workers or patient liasons can help linking you with local sources that will help with payment. Township trustees, churches, some places have a local 211 that can guide you to services. I link clients to community resources and there is often help out there, but it can take alot of phone calls, emails, letters. Good luck, I hope you can find some help.
