I feel for those who don't have coverage! Out of concern, I will also look into where one can turn. I will be sure to post if I come up with some worthwhile answers!!

If any of you are in philly i have a place I don't know about anywhere else.But if you have a free clinic you can get all your meds and check up free and all your testing supplies for free and sometime up to a 3 month supply.

I'm sorry to hear this. It does not make the load you carry any easier.
Do you have a local Health Dept.? They might be able to help, or point you in a good direction. I would check out the Red Cross is you have one in your area, they might have some idea's for you.
Good Luck. We are all here for you. God Bless. Mickey

I will have no insurance in a few months as well. At my age, it will cost me over $500 a month to purchase. I plan on going to a clinic based on my income. Hopefully test through the clinic. I also plan on paying the $70 to see my regular doctor, 3x per year. Get my meds from Wal-Mart $10 for three months. Find where your public clinics are located that include a sliding scale. Talk to your doctor and see what they may be willing to do.

Any other idea's? I need help too! So sorry for your situation!
