Check with the hospital and the doctors to see if they have financial assistance to cover some of the bills. In 2014 I spent a week in ICU with sepsis & no insurance. I filled out financial aid paperwork and the hospital forgave $75,000 hospital bill as well as $6,000 bill for visiting nurses after I was released from the hospital. I had another $7,000 in doctor and surgeon bills - with financial aid they reduced the balance by 80% and accepted payments of $25 per month until paid. It would never have occurred to me to even ask about assistance - it was suggested by someone who called me about the past due balance with the hospital.
