I was just asking Raven if he knew whether you got COBRA set up or not.

Gah...I'm so sorry, sweetie.

Maybe there are options??

It's good to know your throat is work as much as a mid-sized car.

So have you ever considered prostitution? I've heard it's a fulfilling and rewarding career path.
And it's a GREAT way to make friends!!

Do you have insurance? Either way, when is the fund-raiser?

I winced at that price then I realized I'd misread it as only sixteen hundred.

Then I winced a whole lot more.

Fuck, that's a lot. What's your job situation? Because you may be able to negotiate down... like 30 cents on the dollar...

Basically the idea is, you can't get blood out of a turnip. My dad's a lawyer and he's been helping coach me on dealing with my $30k medical bills. My email is pamc at pamcurtis.com and my #s are 425-347-4275h 425-737-0839c

I'd be happy to pass on any knowledge I get on how to negotiate down.

can't get. My company was under 50 so was under no requirement to carry cobra, so therefore, the new owner doesn't. I'm boned.

have you spoken to their credit department yet?

Call them as soon as you are able to speak, or write them a letter explaining your financial situation and applying for aide. You should be able to get that amount cut down a LOT.

You will probably have to talk to the doctors, the anethestists, the hospital, and others individually on it. But most of them should be able to give you some assistance with this.

I got a lot of assistance when I had my surgery there, I bet there are still programs in place.

Have you filed with DSHS to see if they will pay for it?

If your income is below the poverty line, they will likely pay for it all. I had them do that a few years back when I broke my leg.
