That is the amount I have to come up with to pay the hospital BEFORE they even start my procedure or send the bill to the insurance agency.

What is this money for?

Well this bill is the up front costs for the surgery I am going to have on Tuesday, February 26.

Do I have this money? Or course not!

What am I going to do?

Any ideas?

This does not include the amount they are predicting for AFTER the surgery and the insurance payment.

This is stressing me out. I just got through with paying the bills from spending Thanksgiving in the hospital and now this is coming up. I am really researching options now so if you have any advice on where to look or what to do PLEASE let me know.
