Hi jackdog, I've an idea for your medication, yet I cannot figure out any answer regarding the MRI, yet.
Please, tell us what medication you were taking, some pharma companies will give their meds gratis, or at the very least, a very low amount of money will be charged. But it sounds as if you need your meds gratis.
I will be awaiting your answer, at least we can help you with your meds, hopefully.
That's very nice of all and u don't know now I appreciatte it but as far as my meds good go I have had to lost them 3 years ago when I lost my insurance so.I am.kinda back.at square 1 . I can get them back if it I have to come up with a MRI I guess because the X rays of the if S in my spine isn't enough. So I would really b greatful if I could must find a place that will do MRI with charging me all my limbs and blood to do it so if any one can just point me in the right direction would make my year . Thanx
Teaching hospitals have clinics, and help for people without insurance. Following masos advice might get you the help you need. The other thing would be to see if you can qualify for medicaid. Is the dr refusing to order pain meds without an MRI? I think I'd worry about the pain, then work on getting the MRI if I could.
I know Medicare only pays $400 for my $2500 MRI but I have a friend who has to pay the full $2500 because he has no insurance. Ridiculous! And yes, I understand the need for an MRI - doctors are so cautious these days about prescribing pain meds, they want proof of an issue first. Sorry I can't help you, but I certainly emphasize with you! -EJ
Hi Jackdog, but I'm a bit confused. I checked the State of Maine, and as of August of this year, they have formed an insurance pool for people with pre-exixting conditions. You can get insurance now. Please google Affordable Healthcare Act Maine, and read on!! You will be able to get covered, and get your meds again.
Best wishes to you, and I hope that you find answers soon!
