You may be able to consolidate your medical bills and debts
http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... _debt.html
There are professional organizations, credit counselors, and even debt management agencies and companies that focus on helping those with medical bills and expenses. Usually these are easier to deal with, as doctors and hospitals are usually less willing to sue, due to publicity and other reasons. You can usually get by by paying just a portion of your outstanding medical debts, and consolidation is often another options.

Is it the medical bills you need help with, or the every day expenses and other bills you have? If it is medical bills, or need dental programs, try a negotiator or advocate.

They can provide information on government programs such as medicare, guide you to local ear doctors, or many other health and medical care programs. Speech programs may also be supported by negotiators.

Hello,
My Daughter was born six weeks ago with down syndrome. My wife has decided to leave her job and be his caregiver full time. We have applied for Medicaid for him and ssi, but we don't know if we will receive ssi due to my income and we have debts from from the birth. I have been partially laid off several times thru the last 4 years, but if employed full time my salary is around $47,000. We also have a 9 year old daughter. Please let me know if there are any other programs that we might be eligible for.
Thanks,

Did you look into may of the free health care options that are available. While not sure if they can help with down syndrome your daughter has, they may be able to help or at least redirect you. Or maybe get free health care for some of the items, such as prescriptions or other needs. Find health care for free, including government aid, non-profits, and volunteer doctors and charities. That income is really not too bad. Many are worse...

I had a double mastectomy on October 2011 with breast reconstruction done April 2013. I had 80% of my bill covered but over the lasts year I have paid them. I paid out over 10,000.00 and still be paying. I also had 4 chemo treatments. I was told by a social worker to try getting some of the payment back with help from your company. I do have social security as of October 20 2013 (Estimate date). I have house payments, utility, parent loan, car. I had given up my cable and cell phone service for two years so we would not lose our home. Please any help would help so I don't lose my home in Virginia Beach. I can show my bills if needed.

I have been on full medical disability for 7 years. During this time I have developed a lot of medical debt. Due to pressure to pay the medical bills, I compounded my problem because I paid them with my credit cards. My credit cards have helped me by lowering my interest rate, but I am still having great difficulty paying all my bills each month. Any help you could provide me would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, as I had mentioned your facility offers financial assistance for disabled people with paying their medical debts and dental bills. I have six specialist. I suffer from 4 curable diseases and they're very painful, very exhausting and I have complications with them.
I have the urologist, a neurologist, a gastroenterologist, a preliminary doctor, cardiologist. The pain management doctor and then my primary physician and just the other day my pain management doctors office staff management billing department were upset because I owe them $375 that was not covered by my insurance.
I owe $700 out to my other doctors for a medical debt, also I cannot afford to pay this. I am on my social security disability I would appreciate some assistance in some shape or form to help me pay for my doctor bills because I also have to pay for over the counter meds in addition to my pharmaceutical meds.
I have co pays and then so I mean how far do you think disabled SSI money is going to go if you pay rent, car insurance, utility bills and food bills. How far do you think the money would go.
Next with the remaining teeth I have in my mouth about 90,000 top and nine on the bottom. I have no back teeth. I was told by a free dental clinic that my enamel on my teeth as you wrote it away even though I brush my teeth regularly.
Its relevant to poor health. My body has taken its toll and can but in combination with the daily amount of medications. I take 12 prescription medications and has also taken its toll on my teeth. I need aggressive across the board dental treatment and he saying from cleaning root canals, Crowns, partial plates too perhaps even full dentures be that as it may I have no money for this.
I can only hope and pray that this time free clinic out there then offers across the board full spectrum dental treatment and be able to help and age 57 year old disabled person.
I can't get teeth property to eat with so I'm hoping that I can get assistance with paying my medical bills or debts and also with getting my proper dental treatments today.
My teeth are healthy and or replaced whatever needs to be done has to be done otherwise it's only going to cause more health complications and I have reached a breaking point.
I'm seeing a therapist for my disability because of suffering from depression, from the suffering from the medical conditions the everyday stress. I have nothing else to say. I think I said enough.
