  • If you can take those bills to DSS they will usually grant you assistance based on the fact your insurance didnt coverthem, you can get like temporary medicaid....Otherwise theres always health dept. dont just not go!!! your in the last stretch....

  • What about going to your state building and gett put on the state insurance they HAVE to give it to you your preggo. Your child needs to be checked out. This is not healthy and you have put this off WAY to long. Smarten up little girl your child could be in danger.

  • Why won't your father's insurance pay your medical bills? Routine visits should be free, $20 tops. If it is that worthless and is keeping you from getting medical assistance, drop it.

  • Have your father drop you off he's insurance and then go to the state building and get the state insurance, once you are approved then you bring in the past due bills that you need paid and they will cover them also. Look in your local phone book and you will fine the # for the health department..

  • just set up payment plans with your doctor's office and the hospital. that is what we did and they were very accomadating. As long as they see you trying to pay your bills, most doctors are wiling to work with you. also you can try a walk in clinic just to have your routine visits. try the local health dept. it will be listed in the phone book.

  • Call the Department of Health in your local area and sign up for medicaid. You will be covered if you qualify and your past health bills up to three months prior to getting covered may also be taken care of. Call your local department of health and see if you qualify. You can also go to free health clinics to get prenatal checkups as well. You need to go to the doctor, and there are options for you if you aren't able to go to your regular OB.
