Hi Shielda,
Sorry to hear about your cousin.  Medicaid is designed for situations like this.  If he needs surgery now, a large teaching hospital is probably the place to go.  They should be able to help with medicaid paper work if they qualify.

I hope this helps.

I am not positive, but I think most of the large teaching hospitals will be able to take your cousin's case.  Try a large community-based hospital.

Best wishes to everyone.

they have to treat your cousin no matter what the finances are in the US.. but a good teaching hosp is a good idea and then set up payments, do some fundraising if needed..

best of luck
