Free Surgery For The Uninsured

Doctors Provide Free Surgery To Those Without Insurance

Due to a variety of factors in existence today, there is no telling who will require surgery or when. And with the fact that not all are covered under guaranteed health insurance or any other similar health insurance plan, the mere fear of surgery invokes great worries financially. Hospitals, despite trying their best, are in no position to offer free surgeries to their patients, largely due to their own budgetary constraints. Under these circumstances, people who desperately need surgery either have to pay on their own, thereby incurring huge debts, or simply go without, which again results in serious repercussions. However, all this was changed in Kentucky, which incidentally boasts of nearly one third of its adults as falling in the uninsured bracket.

Here, Dr. Andrew More introduced an innovative program called the SOS or Surgery on Sunday in 2010. Ever since then, thousands have benefited from this program of the Lexington Surgery Center. One Sunday, every month, the doctors, nurses and other allied practitioners in this hospital provide free surgeries to those who desperately need them. While there is a long list of patients who want this service, importance is given to those who need it more urgently.

In a country and time when pre existing conditions are reasons for refusing insurance coverage, this is a great move. Additionally, it's  excellent for those who earn more than what is required as qualification for Medicaid and yet earn nowhere near what they should, to afford individual health insurance.

 

Reasons Not to Wait any Longer for Health Insurance

Health Insurance: 4 Reasons why you should opt for it now!

Escalating healthcare costs, rise in health issues, and the threat of chronic conditions are all factors that increase the need for health insurance. Despite these facts, many people still lie in the uninsured bracket for various reasons, chief of which is the cost of health insurance. However, these four reasons show why you should not wait for health insurance.

  • Risk of pre existing medical conditions: Earlier, insurance companies could and did refuse pre existing condition health insurance coverage, largely because the risk was too high. However, today with new regulations and mandates, there are other high risk pools for you to gain insurance from. Additionally, by 2014, the government seeks to ensure that no insurance company can actually refuse insurance due to such conditions.
  • Expensive healthcare: Healthcare costs are increasing at a steady rate. Under these circumstances, the onus of payment is entirely on the individual, where there is no insurance. Moreover, without health insurance, you do not qualify for any discounts that others with insurance can boast of.
  • Risk of being uninsured: Financial debts and bankruptcy are the highest amongst those who are uninsured against health emergencies.
  • Insurance for young adults: Young adults believe that their youth and good health do not require any insurance against health emergencies. However, studies have shown that a large percentage of young adults visit emergency rooms every year, and adequate coverage by health insurance plans can help them deal with costs of such treatment.

For these reasons, if you are contemplating getting health insurance, make sure you do not delay the process any longer and end up losing out financially.

 

 

A Limited Benefit Medical Plan can be the Answer

A Limited Benefit Medical Plan can be the Answer

Health can be a gamble when we go uninsured.  Ask Kate and Josh. As a young new couple with no plans of having children and a lot of student loans to pay back, they decided to cut costs by going without health insurance for a few months. The figured they were relatively healthy and almost never went to the doctor. It didn’t seem like a risk to them at all.

Life throws us a curb ball sometimes.

Kate was diagnosed with early stage ovarian cancer a few weeks later. They were shocked. It seemed like they had nowhere to turn to.

Life with a pre-existing condition can seem miserable. It's constant rejection everywhere you go.

Thankfully, Kate and Josh had the wherewithal to call us.

Limited Benefit Medical Plans Changed their Lives

We were able to find them a limited benefit medical plan that accepted them right away. This plan was a fee-for-service plan that paid exact amounts for every kind of service. This left them knowing exactly how much they would have to pay out of pocket for any kind of service.

Kate and Josh were able to get the medial attention that they needed and were able to stop and eliminate the cancer from spreading.

How a Limited Indemnity Plan can Help You and Your Loved Ones

Kate chose an indemnity plan with a PPO network. Not only was she able to get large cash payments for each service she needed, but she was also able to get PPO network repricing. What that means, is that for every $300 specialist doctors visit she had, she was able to get at least 50%-75% off the price since her doctor was in network.  After that, the indemnity portion of the plan paid $120 towards the remainder of the visit. That meant she paid anywhere from $30 to zero dollars for her specialty doctors visit.

No Strings Attached

Kate was apprehensive at best when we first showed her the plan. She thought it just sounded too good to be true. We let her know that there were no strings attached. She could cancel at any time. The greatest part is that she had 30 days with the plan in which she could cancel if she was not pleased.
