A couple of you have asked for the names and numbers of the groups I used so I thought I'd post it in a new thread. I have three numbers and the first one is the foundation that helped me. The criteria were that you had to have insurance but it didn't pay all of the bill, there's a certain income criteria (don't know what it is) and you had to have a disease diagnosis that they cover. They are paying the part I owed for my chemo drugs which I am forever thankful for!! I don't know how the other two work.
Health Well Foundation: 1-800-675-8416
These numbers were given to me by my primary care doctor's office and then the office mananger at my oncologists office worked with the health well foundation often and I just went into her office and filled out the paperwork and provided proff of income and she faxed it over to them and then 4 days later she checked and I was approved. So some of the chemo doctor's offices might already work with some of these programs and could help you. Talk to whoever works with patient assistance.
Then of course, as many have said, their is the American Cancer Society that helps with bills too. If anyone else knows any other places, feel free to add them to this list!!
Hope this helps someone!
Love and Light,
