No funds to pay health insurance premiums so need help

Post by sheniqua » Sun Mar 05, 2017 10:31 pm

I need help with my health insurance premium and medical bill. I have a grade 2 sprain. But they think something else is going on with my ankle. I've been off of work since June 21 and used every vacation time and time off with pay I had. Now I have no money to pay the premium to cover these bills or go to physical therapy. My job is still available to me. I just need help to pay my bills so they can see me again. I need to get back to work.

Help for premiums is very rare. Getting help towards a deductible is more common. For a premium, maybe try another plan level...such as Bronze or Silver health insurance. Also, as far as your medical bills, talk to your doctor or drug company to ask about a payment plan. So those are some options for your premium, and find other resources here. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... al_bi.html

Dear Access DuPage,
I am seeking information about getting health care with low premiums in a difficult situation.
I do not have a car. I work near my home, and blessed, I have little travel I need to do far from home.
This year I was forcibly introduced to Obama care/Medicaid. Let me explain, I received warnings about a monetary penalty if I did not have health care coverage in 2016, and I became enrolled in a Medicaid HMO policy through Blue Cross blue shield by January of 2017. When it came time for me to make an appointment the doctor I was assigned to do not exist. I spent 4+ hours on the phone on two separate days trying to obtain a new doctor within my city, Wheaton, Or within reasonable distance from my community. Many customer service representatives and I searched for a new doctor for me to see, but my plan with its high premiums came up empty handed in any database for physicians accepting my health plan aside from one facility in down town Chicago. This distance is not possible for me to accomplish and it seems the outlets for any health care attention through this plan are few and far between.
I remember a time, prior to having health insurance when I would just go to my local health services department to receive health care and I could pay 20.00 and have my needs met and feel like I had some peace of mind when I needed health care. Now I can't do anything except call my provider and talk to more office people about how I have no primary care physicians available to me in my region of Illinois.
Please help me to find relief. I've been facing health problems for many months and I need to see a doctor that is within reach.
I would appreciate this letter being forwarded to any of the proper departments or organizations that might help me.
