| | Medical and dental bills and medication help?
Let me first start out by saying I have good health and dental coverage, But I did use up my dentist premium (I needed crowns done and root canal) I now have a dental bill I am responsible for in the amount of $900. That is after the $1000 premium. I also have some hospital bills added up.
I have bcbs and also the safety net plan through our local hospital. The bcbs covers most of the bill except the copay $100 for an ER visit. Here is where it is strange I had bcbs for some time now and the copay used to get picked up by the safety net plan but now it is not.
Also I got a hospital bill for $250 copay for a video capsule endoscopy,Mind you I walked in, got a harness put on me,swallowed a pill, then came back quite a few hours later to return the harness. There was no cutting or surgery involved. I did not know there was a copay for this until I received the bill. I thought it was covered under a medical test where there is no copay. I had the video capsule because My GI dr has already done a colonoscopy (was normal),Upper GI (Barretts Esophagus),and a few other tests to help figure out what is going on with my body.
I am 28 years old I have had Bad abdominal pain and diarrhea since I was about 8 years old off and on alot.
Because of the Barretts I have to have an Upper GI every 2 years to make sure I have not developed esophageal cancer or anything. That is another $250 copay for the day surgery center.
I am also looking for help getting my daughters ADHD prescription because her copay for it is $50 a month, I would consider the mail away but I don't have the money up front. We are a low income family of 4. I have looked into
assistance biut they usually require you to be either unemployed,Uninsured,disabled or elderly and the chronic conditions adhd is not one, she is 9 yrs old. Is there any help out there?
Some bills needing help:
video capsule- $250
Daughters copay rx- $50/mo.
me and husbands rx- $35-$50/mo.
Also OTC omeprazole-$ 25/mo.
Thank you to anyone who can help us find help.
