    Health related, but OT i guess. My sister needs a very extensive surgery and her insurance is probably only going to cover a small portion of the total bill (which will certainly be very very large). She IS on disability, and has limited finances. Does anyone know of ways to get financial assistance with surgeries?

    Some hospitals have patient assistance programs available in certain situations. Maybe that is a place to start?

    Good luck,

    I, too, was going to suggest the hospital. Call the Insurance department of the hospital where she is going to have the surgery. If they don't know, they can direct you to the correct person to talk with. Just tell them that you need to inquire about their options on paying back balances due on your hospital bill.
