I am writing to share my request to help my family. I have been considered pre-existing condition with health insurance as has my daughter since she was born at 30 weeks with health issues and I had eclampsia 15 years ago. We have tried to be timely with our bills yet a serious accident putting me out of work, loss of health insurance and emergency surgery almost devastated us. We found a little help via family and friends. More recently, I have started a new job with a great nonprofit. However our deductible is $4000 before being covered by said insurance. Our daughter recently had to have emergency hip surgery (7/5) and I paid $475 towards it yet with such a high deductible and with bad debt from previous medical situation, we can’t swing it and are asking for help.
