Isn't that ridiculous, they will pay for morphine up the ying yang, but God forbid we want to try nerve blocks or PT to help with pain, they won't lay the money out! It's unfortunate that medical care more and more is governered by accountants and less and less by doctors.
I also have no medical insurance, and I can tell you what I did, maybe it will help you, too. I went to the front part of the local phone book, looked under county, and called the county health number and got the name of the clinic nearest me. I called them and they set up a financial screening appointment, since my hubby and I dont qualify for public assistance. It turned out that we were eligible for $20 doctor visits, and $10 prescriptions. The county pharmacy is small, but what they didnt carry we were able to get at walmart on their $4 generic plan, except for a few of hubbys meds which we got a 'drug scholorship' on from the manufacturer.
I can get x-rays free, and for other things I pay a nominal fee. The building I go to is beautiful and modern, I have my own doctor, who is very caring and competent. Its a great safety net for those of us who 'fall through the cracks'.
I hope this can help you at least with some of your medical issues, I would also advise getting a workman's comp lawyer to help you get all the benefits you have coming to you.
I have never delt with workmans comp myself, But I know many on this board have, I'm sure some of them will be along soon with more advice about that.
Good luck to you, don't give up, and keep posting, we're here to support you!
