Anything related to your pre-existing condition will not be covered. Your
best bet is to go to a county based clinic. It will cost you less, and they do have financial assistance based on your income or ability to pay. You will probably have a wait there too.
Your next best bet is to go to an Urgent Care facility. They are also less expensive than a hospital based ER-and you may be able to negotiate a cash discount for your services.
If you decide to go to the ER, many hospitals have financial assistance based on your income. You may be able to negotiate a cash discount there as well, if you do not meet the eligibility for charity care.Answer 2
Right, the medical care associated with the kidney stones is not covered. However your prescriptions may be. If they are not, check at Walmart, or Walgreens for cheap generic prescriptions. Walmart is $4 a month now.
