Question: free/subsidized rheumatologist in the bay area


 InsaneElayne - Mon Jan 09, 2006 4:45 pm

I need a rheumatologist that will treat me for cheap. I just graduated college and my healthcare ran out, unfortunatly I can't get on another health plan due to the fact that mixed connective tissue disease is an auto decline for insurance companies. I need to treat this disease but I can't afford it.
Every job I apply for that offers benefits, I end up not getting. If anyone has any knowledge of free/ subsidized clinics that offer treatment of autoimmune disorders, could you please let me know! Also any information on how to see doctors for cheaper would be much appreciated.
I live in the San Francisco bay area.
Thanks

User avatar Unfortunately, I can not help you from Europe. Best way to find some cheap help is to ask your general doctor or find contact to the self-help groop of your area.
