When Expertise Can Change a Life
Maggie, a forty-year-old mom, came to Young & Healthy seeking help with insurance for herself and her son, Jason. Maggie had learned the hard way how the lack of health insurance can impact her family. Earlier in the year, Maggie needed emergency surgery and without the benefit of insurance, she owed the hospital over $85,000. Wow! Most of us don’t have that kind of emergency cash.
Luckily, Maggie came to Young & Healthy for some help. Our staff happens to be aware of a little-known fact about Medi-Cal. A person can apply retroactively for Medi-Cal and it will cover prior medical services rendered during the previous 12 months. Maggie walked out of our office with health insurance for both herself and her son, as well as freedom from an $85,000 debt. Young & Healthy could practically hear her sigh of relief for blocks away.
