bills!

I just got our bill for Dante's visit from when we were in the hospital and the 3/4 times we seen the doctor so far.

$1,071 Shocked

I'm glad it's not more but it still bites to have to pay it. Good thing we'll be getting our tax refunds back soon.

I'm covered under my father's insurance, but Dante's not covered under it. And Thomas was JUST elible for insurance on the 15th, so that doesn't kick in until Feb 1st. And our household income is too much to apply for Medicaid.

For Medicaid? No because my stepfather said that he can't even get his kids on it because he makes too much. We're trying to talk Thomas's parents into letting us use their address since Thomas still is using that address, but she keeps saying no.

Yea, we have Colorado Health Care for Children and it'll pay anything for 3 months back. I'm going to talk to my parents and get their information to apply since we don't live on our own yet.

At least try to get some medicaid or this. YOU are the parent now. Not your parents. Your income is a lot less (obviously). Your son should be covered.

Also, talk with the hospital about it. Their billing department can help you out. I'm amazed someone hasn't led you in the direction of healthcare from there or your doctor's office anyway. That is just silly.

Apply for these programs even though you live with your parents. You'll be amazed. Chances are you will also qualify for welfare.
