Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
The help that would be available to someone with no insurance will vary according to each state and community, so there is no answer that will apply to everyone.
Since it requires knowledge of the programs that are available in your local community, the usual next step that would be helpful would be to talk with the local Department of Social Services. Another option would be to ask financial counselors at the local hospital for assistance in identifying programs for which you may be eligible.
Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.
If there are no programs for which you are eligible, then another option would be to consider referral to a teaching hospital. Since they are involved in training new doctors and surgeons, they may be able to provide care at a lesser cost to you, although you may need to travel further to be able to be seen.
You are very welcome.
