ty for the replies! yes, we had 2 social workers or financial advisors or whoever they were. she applied for indigent help, but one must be homeless to qualify for that. i have heard others say they have this company who "loans" money for the bill and then one pays it back to this company.
however, we/she since she is a adult-- were denied all of it. she continues to owe about 8,000$--those trauma rooms are high--and i dunno, because it was a Od, or what, no one will budge a inch for us.
i would think, bottom line, getting x amount a month is better than getting 0 but they dont think so.
sighs*. was hoping maybe it was law or something and we could make them accept payments.
no, i didnt sign anything. in fact, i never even was spoken to by anyone, dr or nurse. they talked to her only, and she was out of it from the drug she took. i was surprised they discharged her so fast, with it being a Od and all. shrugs*
my daughter did send in proof of income, SS number, proof of psych history, all that. they just said sorry, cant help ya.
mary, i hope your sister is better. boy, thats so hard to handle. im still trying!
appreciate the replies. :)
