FYI what I am on for indigent care is strictly through UCH (University of Colorado Hospital) so that may be why they do not count anyone else's income other than my own. From what the nice lady told me who took my app (and btw it took her about 3 mins to take my app, tell me I was accepted and to print out my card/prices) unless you are 21 or under, at least here, the hospitals do not count anyone other than you for income.
Also, just a side-note but I do think a loyal dog should be listed as a method to deal with CP. I have/had a cocker spaniel (who lives with my ex-wife now) and I was with him since he was a small puppy. He was with me through thick and thin when I first hurt my back, kept me company when I was alone or in pain, and was always there to look after my son when he was first born. The simple fact that a dog who will be loyal and love you and keep you company even after hard times (and especially when they wake you up at night) is enough to keep anyone going, even if you are in constant pain. My cousin has 4 yellow labs. I love them to death, even if they do maul me when I walk in the door. :)
