I am a mother of 2 girls. I am currently a nursing student finishing up my last semester hoping to graduate in December 2018. My youngest, 8-years-old, was born with a right pulmonary atresia congenital heart defect. As of today, there is an outstanding balance of $3358.41, which I’m not able to pay in full or anywhere near my budget.
She has undergone 4 surgeries. All of which were extremely successful. She usually follows up with her cardiologist every 6 months. Recently we were denied in seeing her physician due to an “unpaid” balance from December 2017. At that time she didn’t have a primary insurance coverage, I was sure insurance didn’t kick in until January 2018, just like everyone does. When scheduled to see her doctor on December 2, 2017, her only insurance was Medicaid, that I was aware. Here we are in the office, drove a hour to get here, took the children out of school, then told she was not able to be seen because of an unpaid balance. My daughter has been under her care since she was in the womb. Never had any issues. Turns out, that my health insurance started 12/01/2017, and Medicaid denied the claim. No calls were made, no notices were mailed, therefore it was too late to refile. Shocking news, we were told SHE CAN NOT BE SEEN! As a parent, I do not want to change hospitals and doctors because her TEAM as been at this facility since I was 7 months pregnant with her.
Please I am begging you for help, please help me help her and allow her to live her best life. This donation will help to pay off the bill so she can continue her normal care plan to avoid any mishaps or threat to her condition.
I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you so much.
