People who become disabled from an illness or injury are generally elibible for SSD or SSI depending upon their individual circumstances. When a person qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits they can usually receive early Medicare and/or Medicaid. Visit the Social Security Administration website or call 1-800-772-1213 for information about qualification requirements and the application procedure. Please be advised there is a waiting period after the application has been submitted. For job related injury or illness the person should also contact the Workman's Compensation Insurance provider for his place of employment. http://www.ssa.gov Note that the waiting period for Medicare for disabled people is 2 YEARS...for for that period the disabled are on their own as far as medical care goes

If the government agrees that the person is disabled and needs medical care medicaid is most likely the insurance they will give that person. The programs are administered by the states and so qualifications vary. There are usually requirements in terms of income and assets was well as degree of medical care needed.

You have an insurance policy which explicitly spells out what is insured and what kinds of claims you can make, so you might want to read your policy, but I can tell you that the purpose of homeowner's insurance is to protect you from financial loss resulting from damage to, or theft of the property in your home; it is not medical insurance and does not pay medical bills of whatever sort.

You have to go to the Emergency room, Any free clinic, or and Free Project for hope Vans/Buses. That is where you go for medical help if you have no medical insurance.

No, of course not. If the insurance company already paid the medical bills, then obviously you didn't need a lawyer's help to get them paid. Therefore, they are not entitled to a percentage of something they had no part in recovering.

I believe Illinois does offer free transportation to their disabled drivers. They may have to provide medical records so the company may be able to help the person to the best of their ability.

Depending on why you need to raise money for your mum is how you get the money. To pay bills, etc,.; Take a little bit out of your job pay check and help her pay the bills. To help with medical problems/bills; Find out what the insurance can offer. From there take it to court. You may get a settlement for why she is injured, etc. If anything else...improve my answer.

Check with equote.com for no medical exam life insurance. MatrixDirect.com may also be able to help you with that type insurance.

I don't know without more information, there are numerous reasons that they would/could deny them. The insurance company must in writing explain why they have denied any claim, or portion of the claim. If you would like to give me more details regarding the facts of loss I could be of more assistance to you and perhaps 'see' the reason from that information.......sorry, and good luck.........let me know if I can help. To answer the question we first need to find out which insurance is denying the bills, as well as which insurance should be paying the bills. When you working with accidents the liable party could be the motorcyle insurance, the insurance for the party at fault or a medical insurance.

"A springfield lawyer can help you get money to pay for medical bills, but only if there is a legal reason that you are entitled to that money. They could represent you in a personal injury suit, or a malpractice suit, if those are the reasons you have medical problems."

Many health insurance plans do not provide coverage outside of the United States; if they do, it may not be a full coverage. Also, specialty medical insurance for traveling abroad can cover situations that your medical insurance will not, such as medical evacuation.

Frequently, you can contact the hospitals where the surgeries were performed (provided the bills have NOT already gone into collections) and you can explain the financial hardship. They will have form for you to complete demonstrating the financial hardship that you will need to submit along w/ bank statements, income verification, etc. If there is a true need, they may opt to forgive the debts or at least lower them for you.
