    Was wondering how you get help in your area when you don't have medical insurance?

    I desperately need to see a Rhumy among other doctors but can't afford it, they all want their money upfront when you are self pay.

    I've gone to the emergency room at several hospitals and just not been able to pay the bills yet.

    Any advice??

    You might qualify for medicaid. Check with your local state office. You might also call and find out if any doctor in your area have a sliding scale for fees. You might also call the office manager for the Rhuemy you want to see and ask if they can help in hardship cases.

    I went for years without insurance and therefore went without seeing a DR. I have insurance now but the way things are going I too will be without in the not so far off future. I will have to beg for sliding scale help or whatever.
