We Have A Free Hospital But They Push The Dates So Far Back It's A Shame. I Asked For An Appointment For Eye Care And They Said April 2013¡ I'm Like Wow Really? A whole lot Can Happen In between Now And The Four Month Stretches For Appointments. I'm New To All Of This. And Yes That Doctor In The Er Cut Me loose Quick. The Nurses Had Hooked Me Up To The Heart Monitors. Even The Nurses Looked Puzzled When The Doctor Did That
In my state we have Charity Care for people who have no insurance. Also, the ER cannot refuse treatment to anyone, even if they are uninsured here. Like the previous post, check out Social Services in your state, and most hospitals have low cost clinics you can go to. Good Luck.
Are there any low cost clinics in your area? Some offer a sliding scale depending on your income. Also, some bloodwork, cholesterol, bp, glucose testing is offered free at drug stores and health fairs. Perhaps Social Services or a church group such as Salvation Army can offer some help. Good luck to you.
