Medicade....

I have a crazy insurance company that I am under my father for..... He says that he Dosent want to pay for the birth of what the insurance company does not cover and from what I heard it is a lotus money!! And I just don't have it to pay :( is it possible that I could switch to medicade without being billed a rediculious bill when they find out I am on my dads insurence...... But it isn't that simple because I don't think my dad can just take
Me off of his unless I have something already.. I don't know how that really works :(

    You can contact someone in the financial department of the hospital if you can truly not pay. They will ask you questions and have you do some paper work to see if you are eligible for a discount. Sometimes even letting you off the hook if you are low income. We had to do that when my husband cut his hand on a table saw a couple of years ago and we didn't have insurance and he had to go to the emergency room .

    A word of warning though don't ignore the bills that come in. Stay in touch with the institutions and keep track of who you talk to and make notes. My husband thought the doctor's bills were the same as hospital and we ended up put on a credit collection list unnecessarily just due to a misunderstanding. They cleared it but we had to go through hoops to get it done. Also the individual doctor's offices will have to be appealed to as well. My husband's doctors just required a letter from the hospital showing they reduced/eliminated our bill and they did as well. We ended up not owing anything.

      If you apply for medicaid and get it you would just have your dads for the main insurance and what they dont pay medicaid will pay the rest
