Our Medical Insurance Just Pulled The Rug Out From Under Us

My Story:

I am a married mother of two girls. I work full-time about an hour away from home. My daughters help me as best they can around the house as I am gone 11 hours a day. My husband was deemed permanently disabled seven years ago due to several chronic conditions. He suffers from fibromyalgia, RLS, IBS, chronic pain and chronic fatigue.

Due to my husband's medical conditions, we have a lot of medical expenses. He sees three specialists for specialized testing every 5 years to check for lupus and other rheumatic illnesses. The last two times these tests were performed, our insurance covered everything. This time, they did not. I make a decent income, but this just covers our monthly expenses and regular medical costs. I was not prepared for this expense.

I am asking Modest Needs for help in paying this bill from the hospital for blood work for my husband. I am worried that if this bill is not paid, that he will not be able to see his doctors at this hospital or have testing done.

This funding will put me back in good standing with the hospital so that my husband can still receive the care he needs. Knowing this bill will come up again in five years, I will have time to save for such an expense in the future.

As of 2018-03-21, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
