Crowdfunding Medical Care Even When They Have Health Insurance
Many people feel that crowdfunding for medical care is questionable.
I got calls and emails about this all the time. Many believe that crowdfunding is being used instead of insurance. For example, instead of having life insurance to pay for funeral and expenses that are created around someone’s death, the people go and crowdfund.
Instead of having health insurance, people crowdfunding for medical care. I want to bring attention to the individuals who have health insurance and still need help. I am talking about individuals who are no longer working because of their health and need help paying the doctor visit co-pay. I am talking about people who are not working and have trouble paying health insurance premiums. There are people whose medications cost hundreds of dollars. They can get well. However, if they do not have enough in their budget, they may eat a lot less. Poor nutrition is the enemy of healing. To get healthy, you need your medicine and good, healthy meals.
I am working with Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry to provide for a few families in Los Angeles facing these exact problems. Rhonda Santifer who founded Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry has identified people in need.
“I get calls every week,” says Santifer. “They ask for help and resources to just get to the doctor for their follow ups or treatments.”
Going to the emergency room is not an option for regular cancer treatment. The emergency room is for sudden illness. Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry is raising money to help people get healthy again by making sure they can get to their doctor’s visits. You can help by giving $2.50 a day for 30 days.
We’ve also got some great goodies for those who give!
