What do you suggest if I am 18 yrs old and i was wondering.Can you go to the gynecologist at a hospital without your parent if you are 18?

What happens if one needs to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital, but they can't pay?

What happens if one needs to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital, but they can't pay?

Safety first: If someone has a serious psychiatric illness and needs inpatient care, they should be admiited and payment can be addressed later. A hospital can not legally deny admission based on inability to pay. Once admiited, the person could talk to a hospital social worker or financial specialist about payment options. Often, hospitals will write off indigent care or the state may absorb the costs. ...Read more

High aniexty panic attacks in convinced I'm going to die please help me I can't go hospital again?
