    I would state that not all is lost if you loose insurance.
    Somewhere there must be a way to find Dr's who will be glad to take your $75 for a visit (vs the copay and next to nothing the insurance company pays them) and prescribe affordable medications. I did this for a decade without insurance. When I did get insurance, and good insurance he retired
    He said that what insurance was paying him didn't make it worth maintaining a practice. He couldn't make a living, being that he was honest and not pushing what the pharma drug reps were offering.

    Dear visitor, If you are looking for an online pharmacy please take a look at the following pharmacies in our Top Rated section. Each one has genuine, uncensored feedback from real users.
  3. This only addresses the medication part, but I was very lucky when I didn't have insurance. My doctor took advantage of the pharmacy reps samples. I recieved my meds no charge at all. If all else fails, request samples of the medication you need. Granted, this was a long time ago. But it's worth a shot to ask if you're really in a bind.

  4. Where I live there are walk in centers that take cash or debit. I'm in CA. Not sure where everyone else is. Healthcare should be universal and what Trump has done to this country makes me sick to my stomach. My research uncovered that when he came into office he had all the coroners in the United states submit reports for every opiate death. He counts any person that dies with opiates in the blood AS AN OPIATE RELATED DEATH. Which is FALSE! Just because they had it in their system doesn't mean it's why they died. But it fluffs the numbers for him and gives him a platform to deny the world of pain management!

    Where I live the best hospital has a program for those without health insurance and who make less than 200% over the poverty guidelines. It is a world reknown hospital and they actually do help with those who do not have health insurance. If you don’t mind, what state do you live in? This facility has satellite hospital s in several places and may be helpful to you. My other suggestion is talk to the billing department about programs for those who do not have medical. Best of luck.

    I had a Dr who would find prescription assistance which big pharma would sponsor. I'm sure they got to write it off as a loss, if they pay taxes at all. Tell your Dr you can't afford the medication if that is the case and see if they are willing to help you out. Not all Dr's are evil, some are good - then they retire because they are sick of the broken system as much as struggling patients are.

    ODD the NY marketplace messed up and removed me from the insurance we had. when they did, i lost the tax credit, they acknowledged they made the error, but couldnt fix it! It was time to renew anyway so we found out our premiums went up to over 400.00 a month with a 15,000 family deductible which we cant afford. So now were uninsured. I heard that the fine was no longer in effect though effective 2019.

  8. Absolutely i am also bit aware of this. its true that trip to a doctor costs a lot so in this case if someone is too broke should look for community health clinics they may have sliding scale for people. urgent care centers don't charge fee for their service. some may charge little bit.that should not be big deal.
    apart from that i would say seek out charitable clinic and seek the government assistence.and most importantly believe in God. Nothing is impossible.

    Happy new year
    regards,
