Medical grants cover a wide range of costs associated with your healthcare. Some grants only cover your prescription medications while others cover equipment, copayments, deductibles or your monthly premium payments on your insurance. Many grants exist simply to assist you in the event your insurance does not cover all of the costs associated with your treatment and recovery.
Other medical grants cover you in case you do not have health insurance at all, or your insurance does not cover anything but the basics. While medical grants, and help paying medical bills, exist, most are not advertised widely.
Some of the best places to receive the benefit of a medical grant begin with patient assistance programs in your local area, your state and from the federal government.
Often universities who have medical schools offer services for low to no cost as well.
If you live close to a college consider reaching out to the medical department to see if patient programs exist. Such programs may cover the complete cost of your treatment.
Medical grants offered by religious groups often cover a wide range of medical costs and bills. If you belong to a church or religious organization consider reaching out to them to discuss the possibilities.
Most medical grants only cover a certain percentage with only a few organizations covering all expenses.
The good news is, you can stack the grants. In most cases you can receive medical assistance to cover some aspects of your bills from one organization, and then receive assistance from another organization to cover the rest.
