Amerson - what is your diagnosis, treatment and current health status? I may be wrong, but I think you get financial, assistance through Medicaid - not Medicare. Another option might be social security disability.

I haven't been actually diagnosed yet, but I found a lump and went for an exam yesterday. That doctor sent me straight to the er. She said I shouldn't wait another day. I am scheduling a free mammogram, but I am just thinking about any further medical financial issues because I don't have insurance. Thank you so much for your time!!

This is only valid if you are 64 or younger. Are you talking about not having a medicare supplement and not being able to pay the medicare deductibles and copays? If so, please ask for an appointment with the hospital’s social worker team
