Good Day!.. Please I need help paying my rent for April and May.My insurance switched and my Pain management doctor doesn't accept the new insurance.I have a bone disease that requires pain meds inorder for me to function.To have some quality of life.Im deteriorating quickly and refuse to end up in a wheelchair. Because of the change in insurance..I have had to pay out of pocket for both prescriptions plus office visit.I have tried to find a new pain management,but waiting lists are up to a year. Because of this covid virus tragedy, everything is on temporary hold..my hands are tied.i can barely walk so I have to take cans everywhere. Medical transport is strictly medical..no shopping ECT.Im on a fixed income and have gone without food inorder to get my meds. My rent has been paid on time ..in full monthly until April.Im in a very bad situation and can barely pay 500 a month..but I manage as best I can.Im on a lot of meds..but insurance pays for most of them.Im worried about my rent..if u can help with any cash assistance it would help me catch up until this insurance problem is resolved.
