Sorry to see your sick for sure!
I agree with you as for the healthcare situation in this Country is horrid. No one should ever have to face not getting treated due to ability to pay. I know all hospitals have to treat regardless but that is not good health care and only a bandaide treatment.
Try finding a new Doctor dor yourself or children without insurance that doesnt require an arm and leg up front to be seen and then a hefty office visit payment each time your seen and forget a specialist that is totally out of the question for most folks paying out of pocket.
Even the medcaid system being revised and revamped to cover more folks would be a starting place,if you dont have a child under a certain age or not pregnant then you dont qulaify and if you have any income over $285 a month then you dont qualify anyway here in KY. Even a part time job that doesnt offer benefits make more then that!
Hope you and hubby both get well soon.
