    Well, I have to meet a deductible each year BEFORE my insurance kicks in so my RAI pill ran me about $900 and the hospital/doc (even outpatient charges) was another $300. None was paid by my insurance company and the hospital nuclear medicine lab worked out a payment plan ($100 per month) which I thought was absolutely wonderful. There are always ways to be treated outside of having insurance. Doctors and hospitals will work with you if you are honest right from the start. Here in Colorado they cannot legally turn someone away from even treatment so I guess I have lucked out. Sarah, do what you need to do to get the treatment YOU want. It will all fall into place after that. I’ll say a prayer for you.
