Hi All,

I got a call from my son who was bitten by a black widow spider about 2 weeks ago but didn't tell anyone until the situation is now pretty urgent. He doesn't have any medical insurance and doesn't have much money and is worried about going to an ER as he hasn't the means to pay.

When we lived in Dallas, there was Parkland Hospital where people could go even if they didn't have the means to pay. Is there a place like that in the Denver or Boulder area? My son lives in Broomfield. I am on my way down to his house to help him decide what he needs to do.

Thanks for any help you can give.

~Linda~

He needs to get to an ER at any hospital - immediately!

Thanks guys. He is on the phone to a triage nurse @ Denver Health right now. They can help him decide the best thing to do.

By law Emergency Rooms are required to treat emergencies -- urgent care vs emergency is a difference. If he has decent credit, he should be able to get care for truly nonemergency care. This is what I call the "train wreck"...healthy individuals avoid the "insurance" question, even if it is mandated (as under ObamaCare) and may have a "train wreck". Train wrecks happen!

Thanks a lot for the info, H2B. I'm working on a comprehensive list of resources I'll add these to.

He can go to any hospital, when care is done he can negotiate with hospital and only have to pay 10% of bill.

He may qualify for Medicaid. Once this situation is under control, he should go to https://coloradopeak.secure.force.com/ to get more information.
