A friend called me this evening. Her daughter has no medical insurance and has an extremely large growth on her shoulder. She has a job, but medical insurance isn't provided with the job. She makes very little, probably $24k a year.
Everyone always says that anyone can get treated here, even w/o medical insurance. Does anyone have any idea of the best way for her to go about it?
Supposedly this lump has gotten bigger over the last 2 years. For the life of me I can't figure out why it wasn't looked at before. She said it now is getting red and itchy. I don't think it should wait any longer.
If she goes to the ER, she can't afford to pay and if she doesn't pay, her credit will be affected. Told her I'd call in the morning if I could think of anything.
I'm calling on the collective experience of the board for some ideas. Thanks in advance.
