Public aid or a free health clinic. Otherwise you can purchase insurance with pre-existing conditions for about 400.00 a month.
Check your local phone book and contact the county for assistance with lights, food etc. They are very willing and most gracious.

Partnership for pescription of America 18884772669 call and thell ask you questions to see if you qualify The income guidelines start at around 19,000 a year you could make. They send you a three month supply at a time, you need to get your doctor to write you a perscription, and send it in with your w-2. And its not only for insulin, the meds are free, the strips and meters are at very low cost. everything is sent to your doctor

TogetherRX is a wonderful program. It saved me hundreds of dollars every month until Medicare PartD was put in place.

Try going to Medco.com or PPA (Partnership for Prescription Assistance). I also agree that you should check with your State Insurance Dept. or if you are old enough AARP.

Also; check with local hospital for charity care with billing dept. esp. if you have any unpaid hospital bills. They will often give you an application and if you are qualified; they will write bill off. Plus, you can use this towards doctors affiliated with the hospital. Claudia

type insurance for your state in your search engine. or if you cannot afford it. check out your local health clinics that usually charge on a sliding scale of your income.

I agree. There are alot of programs from the state that help financially. They don't pay all of it but any amount is a big help when you have no insurance.
