COVID Put Me in the Hospital & We Need Help Covering the Bill. It's Already in Collections!
My wife and I have been married for 50 years and have worked and saved for our whole life. We have had many hardships over the years, and we're definitely no strangers to it. In 2008, we lost all of our savings and 401k to the Great Recession. We rebuilt over the years, and then the pandemic hit.
When COVID hit, we were very afraid, as we are both elderly. Neither of us were working at the time, and we're living off of social security income, so we have a fixed income to work with each month. Normally, this would be fine, as we're able to cover all of our bills from month to month. However, I got very sick with COVID recently, and I had to stay in the hospital until I could recover. Thankfully, I'm healthy again, but the hospital bill is threatening to ruin us financially.
I have tried to reach a number of agreements with the hospital, but they won't lend me any assistance. Even with insurance paying them, they're still asking for the huge co-pay they sent to my wife and me. After pleading with them to grant forgiveness on the debt or pay for it through the COVID Relief funds they receive from the state, they are still refusing. I have been paying what I can on it, but they sent it to collections anyways, and we desperately need help covering it before it destroys our credit.
My wife and I are very humbly seeking assistance with this hospital bill so that we can keep our credit and other bills in good-standing. We would be very grateful for this assistance, as it would keep us up to date with all of our other bills, and it would keep us healthy as well. Thank you all for this generosity in advance.
