How do you manage the medical bills when the insurance won't cover/ doctor won't take your insurance?

I don't have the money to pay any medical bills. We are barely making it as it is. And, I am not working. Don't have family to borrow from, nor do I have credit cards to charge on.

Suggestions?

It seems like as soon as I ask the doctors if they take my insurance and they say that they don't that they are immediatly done with talking with me.

have you contacted all LLMD's in your state for sure??

Have you tried others in surrounding states??

Might also check in state of Wisc. as it is across the Lake from you. Think I know of one in Milwakee,,dont know on taking insurance tho.

Keep looking, it will fall into place,,,even if you have to travel a LONG ways to get there.

There are several links with information here:

Also, you can often get your insurance to reimburse you for part of the charges.

I had checked all LLMD's that I had been told about from LymeNet.

My insurance won't reimburse... Ive checked.

But, I starting working with Michigan Lyme Disease Association this evening. I have a name of one dr that takes my insurance, and there is at least one more that they know of that will take my insurance plan.

So it was a good night. :-)

There almost needs to be a special section here,
just for Ins info..pros and cons.

Hope you find a path to get Medical support.
Herbs are of interest..
keep the inmune system strong and detox... slowly as this is not a race, like we wish.
There seems to be 2 ways here have the ins and get both or get the herbs that do the most...
