Is this person you are caring for a senior? Are they disabled? Do they have Medicare? Have you considered if they qualify for Medicaid? They may qualify if their income and assets are low enough.

Dan, from the sound of it you need to apply for Medicaid to help with your healthcare bills. You can check into it at There are links that will guide you to your state and what you need to do to apply. Good luck! Healthcare has gotten to be a huge concern for much of the population of the US, so you are not alone.
One question I just thought of, does your SSI come with Medicare or Medicaid?
