just as an update,
I looked into the financial aide programs through the hospital and they would still be out of my finacial ability. I have tried to find government grants and foundation help, but all of those require it to be atleast stage 1 cancer or higher. My doctor thinks that it is most likely or will be stage 1 very soon. I doubt my insurance will cover another biopsy to prove this though. Everything I look into ends up just discouraging me and leaving me back at the begining.
I will not let my friends and family pay for this. If they were millionaires, that would be a different story! My friends and family get by finacially, just like me. If I cannot afford this, how can I ask or let my loved ones hurt themselves finacially??
I am afraid that if I pay to get one of those gvernment grant program packets, I will be scammed. Has anyone had any good/bad experience with those?
Any help or ideas or ssuggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!! Only 232 days left until the insurance waiting period is over!
I need surgery but my insurance won't cover the cost until I serve the waiting period. I was recently diagnosed with CIN:3 or pre-cancer. My doctor recommends that I have surgery within a week or two. Otherwie this pre-cancer will most likely become cancer Stage 1. This type of cervical cancer tends to be invasive as well. I'm 25, single and do not have any kids. If I have this surgery now, I can avoid a hysterectomy for atleast a few years. MY insurance will not cover this surgery until June of 2010, when the waiting period is over. By 2010, my doctor thinks it could spread and I will require a hysterectomy then. The surgery, if I was the pay for it out of pocket, would cost $7,473. I, needlesss to say, do not have that kind of money. Nor can I afford an extra bill at the moment. I am looking for any kind of grant or government program for the under-insured or persons in need of medical bill assistance. If anyone knows any programs that ould help me, or if you need more information, please contact me!!!
