Is there help for an uninsured student whom is in need of surgery?
I am a 35 year old injured health care student that is about to graduate and I am incapable of performing treatments on my patients. I injured myself 2 years ago and ruptured my chest muscle from my upper arm bone. Surgery is avalible to repair it. I have been qouted from $9,000 in the U.K. to $20,000 here in the States. I was not insured at the time of the injury nor now. Its pre-existing so insurance will not cover it (im assuming). Im $220,000 in debt with my education and unable to perform my future career! Do you have any suggestions?
