Re: Re: Re: Re: 21 year old Transpostion of Great Valves patient needs help

Ruth,

Typically the hospitals associated with a university (there are about 26 or so in the US). Although private hospitals are also learning the value of "financial aid/assistance/grants" which is what most of them call it.

If your son knows he needs a procedure (after he is seen of course) he can request to be screened by the financial aid coordinator to see what his eligibility is for assistance from the hospital. This is basically a way for the "non-profit" hospital to no make a profit by returning proceeds into the unpaid bills by patients.

Your son is not alone, over 75% of the US is uninsured right now.

Have faith,
Brandy
