what happens if it gets turned over to collections and if it does can i no longer go back to the doctor or does he not even know it happens. Not sure what sending in 20 bucks on a huge bill is gonna do . This is part of my anxiety and making my headaches worse. I don't qualify for nothing pretty much . Thought about contacting some veterans service since my dad was a vietnam vet and asking them for some help. My family could care less if i died and i think noone would care.
 Im on clonozapam and just regular headache meds which don't work. My headaches that have been next to my ears on my face and above the temples have now moved to under the temples right next to the forehead and i can feel the vein or nerve sticking out of my head. Im 35 and unemployed and take care of my grandparents and sick sister for free. Thanks for any help. I never had a headache in my life and then wake up and have one for 6 months straight non stop for 24 hours a day
 My self diagnosis is eye strain plus tmj plus some anxiety but not from any doc. He's had 7 reasons as to why and changes his mind each time and im wondering if that is like admitting he doesn't know.

  Frist of all paying the doc 20 dollars a month I think will keep it out of collection as it shows that you are trying to pay no matter how big a bill you have and I don't think that you can go to the VA for helping you out with your medical needs as they tend to only help with vets and there hubby or wifes and if your pdoc can't make up his mind on what is going on with your heath I would be looking for a new doc anyways but you my try public assistance for help with your heath problems as they go by your income and help pay for your doctors visits and meds with a low copay

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe this. I find things like this so difficult to understand as I am from the UK and healthcare is free. I hope you get this sorted as I can understand how worrying it is for you.
Sorry I am not much help but just wanted to say good luck and hope things work out ok.
Take care

Spot on Vic I am in Ontario and all our Health care is free ........
This is something our gov is tryign to implement but the Canadains will NOT let it happen we have alwyas had Ontario Helth Insurance Program and Canadian Health coverage

I agree if you at least pay a few bucks ( 20) you should be fine you are showing them you are at least TRYING

I would send in something and maybe call them and let them know you are working on it. Most docs know that most people can't pay big bills fast.

I'm sorry things are rough for you, hope you get to feeling better!
