Today was very heartbreaking, I get a call from my sister telling me that my son is really sick and needs to go to urgent care. i told her that I will meet her there at (dean clinic) urgent care. My son has been sick since September mind you and has not been eating or sleeping much and has lost weight. I am always taking him in and they tell me its normal for a two year old to be sick. (fine) my child threw up in the urgent care room and the dr even told me that from his chart he needs to be seen and admitted to the hospital for fluids and tests. So I say ok let's do that so we can get to the bottom of this. She goes to call the hospital to admit him when she comes back to tell me they can't since he has no insurance. WHAT!! Im so angry this its come down to this. The dr told me they won't treat him since he has no insurance.... My two year old who is sick.... Really???? Have you ever been denied care due to no insurance? How would you react?
Ok, First off I had State help for my son since I did not have health insurance through my job yet, my husbands job didn't offer insurance. I Paid BadgerCare which is the state insurance until they CUT my son off for my husband getting a raise and is making more money. I put my son on my insurance as soon as open enrollment came up. My son had been seen in September ( had insurance) My son was seen October ( had insurance) Today ( no Insurance because of the reason above) * note this is what Badger care told me when I called* I am a very Responsible Parent and I am Pre Law. I am just reaching out to others to find out how Common this is. One I don't think that is polite to Bash a young Mother for seeking help, Also I think its Wrong for someone to state how Irresponsible a mother is when they dont even know them. How rude is it to bash someone for seeking help. I DID go to a ER and they Treated him and IS still Treating HIM. IT is illegal to turn away a young child no matter how the parent is going to pay. Again I am Asking how often does this happen. ENOUGH BASHING!!
