All doctor and hospital charges are negotiable.
See if you can pay what they usually get from insurance. The way insurance works, the insurance companies negotiate a smaller rate and then the doctors will try to "cost shift" it to those who don't have insurance. So an appointment might be $100, but they only get $40 from insurance, so see if they'll let you pay what they get from insurance. Be nice, show up in person to try to make an appointment, look pained, tell them you work but can't afford insurance. Ask to use the bathroom, use it, then a few minutes later ask to use it again. I'm serious, it's worth a try.
