Need surgery no insurance

My son has no insurance.  He went to the ER a few weeks ago due to a 'peritonsillar abscess'.  They called in a ENT MD to perform and Incision and Drainage.  3 weeks later the abscess is back.  MD has advised he needs a tonsillectomy ASAP.

The dilemma is... my son has no insurance.  Any idea what to do???

You've probably resolved this but most hospitals have a "charity" set up that will cover the majority of bills if you make to much money for government assistance.  You just have to show them your income.  Hope everything is working out!
