Working without Health Insurance: Emergency Gall Bladder Surgery
She is a married woman in Wentzville, Missouri who runs a daycare business out of her home so that she can also care for her husband who suffers from congestive heart failure and COPD. Because she works, she does not qualify for Medicaid, but because she owns her own business, she can't afford health insurance.
So, when she needed emergency gall bladder surgery, and the bills started coming, she didn't know where to turn. She fears that without a little assistance she'll have to go without food or utilities or that she'll be sued for the amount owed. Thus, under our Self-Sufficiency Grant, this resilient individual is seeking one-time assistance with the cost of her outstanding hospital bill.
She tells us, 'It would restore my faith in the human race that people will help you if you are trying to help yourself.'
