Can't Afford to Pay Hospital Bill
(San Jose, Ca, USA)
I visited an ER at a local hospital for a medium stomach pain back in Dec, of 2010. As soon as i put my foot at this facility , i told everyone that i don't have a job, or insurance, however, nonetheless, they said nothing and admitted me for couple of hours.
The ran some unnecessary tests (x-rays, ECO heart test!), and the Dr. wasn't even knowledgeable of my issue. Now i received a huge bill for over $8,250. I've contacted their Assistant Prog. dept, and sent them some docs., but they want more my doc. which i don't want to.
I was thinking to send them $5.00 - to let them know that i can't afford paying this bill, but i am not sure, and don't know if that's a right move.
Pls, advice me what to do, and let me know if you have more questions of me.
