Our children's hospital will make payment plans like this with families who have no insurance.
But for families like ours, who have insurance, but are still facing astronomical medical bills, we get no such offers.
Instead we get payment plans that come with interest rates that are higher than our credit cards.
We emptied out our savings and our kids college funds. We've maxed out credit cards to get Parker's meds and the like.
We are too middle class to receive help. But don't make enough to cover what our insurance won't pay for.
Like Parker's new vent.
Sorry to highjack, but insurance and medical bills are two huge issues of mine.

FYI...if you know ahead of time,that you are to have a surgery or procedure,you can ask the hospital or dr to please accept ONLY what your insurance pays(if you have it),and get it in writing. That helped our family,the last go around.
