Any medical treatment that you have needs paying for and most hospitals and providers will give you one month from the date of billing to pay. Unfortunately, some treatments are just too expensive for payment in full to be made in one go.
If you do find that your treatment is expensive or you have fallen behind with paying your bill, it might be worth looking at whether you can get help via government or charity organizations. If you can, you should make some payment off your bill and get it as low as you possibly can first. You must also know how to spot if an ad for a grant is real or fake.
Look for low-cost providers
If you know that you need treatment in advance look for providers that are lower cost than others are. Some cities have reduced cost clinics but be aware that you need to book well in advance because they get booked up pretty quick.
Spread the Cost
Speak to the clinic in advance and see if you can negotiate spreading the cost. Most will be apply to do so although you may find that the whole amount is due if you fall into arrears. It’s always a good idea, if you are accepted onto a payment plan, to continue looking for an alternative means of paying the entire bill in one go or at least reducing it by a significant amount.
Many clinics consider hardship cases. For example, if you require treatment for spider veins, Southfield area, this clinic is a good one to contact.
Look Into Your Insurance Policy
Many insurance policies will pay some or all of your medical treatment and most clinics work in conjunction with major insurance providers. Check your policy and speak to your insurance provider before you go for treatment to see if cover is available.
Look for Government Assistance
Sometimes you may be able to get government funding to help you pay your medical bills. You will need to provide a lot of information to determine if funding is applicable and available but it is always worth a shot.
If you qualify for government grants make sure you apply for them. We can help you to find out and help you fill out the forms if you require it. It is a time consuming process and must be done in good time. Failure to apply in time for the bill to be paid could result in interest accruing.
Look into Medicaid
Medicaid is always worth looking into if you are on a low income or have lost a lot of money due to your medical condition. Again, this is something that we can help you look into.
If you see adverts for grants that claim to be free, ignore them, they are fake. There is no such thing as a “money for nothing” grant for medical bills, it has to be paid back somewhere along the line. If you receive unsolicited mail or phone calls from companies that offer free money, do not give out your personal information.
If you do fill in forms on the internet for grants or funding, make sure it is a genuine government site first.
