New Twist on Old Problem

April 30th, 2010 at 05:49 am

This is the DD#2 out of work, part 2. To catch you up : DD#2 laid off beginning of April, broke arm end of April, no savings, no insurance. She was worried about someone coming after her in court when she can't pay her medical bills. Unlikely. But she does still owe almost $1500 on her 7 year old car. I was thinking that maybe I should just pay it off. The cash out for the loan is around $1200. She has applied for unemployment, which I am sure she will get, but the paperwork is lagging with massive unemployment in our state. (Michigan) Then she can pay me back. She did still have enough in the bank to cover the car payment, insurance, cell phone for April, and I hope to heaven that the state will have gotten thru her paperwork by next months due dates. She has not asked me to do this, I haven't even said anything about it yet, but I'm considering it. My sister also told her to apply for some help from the state, for the medical bills. The worst that can happen is they say NO, she won't be any worse off than she is now. This reminds me so much of our early days, Hubby and me, eternally broke, and one mini disaster after another. Actually, those early days lasted about 20 years, go figure!

    If I were you I would do the same thing your thinking of doing. I also agree she should apply for "charity care". I'd bet that Michigan has some sort of program also to cover medical expenses for the uninsured. I feel for your daughter; I'm sure the sun will shine for her soon. You are a great Mom!

    Ouch. The pain of the injury is enough without the problem of a lack of insurance on top of it... what a mess. There should be some programs to which she can apply that might lead to some relief in the financial side, at least. I hope it all works out for her and for you!
