Opploans - Medical Emergency - Conclusion


Conclusion

Let’s recap for a second. If you want to keep medical bills at a minimum, here’s what you should do:

  • Start an emergency fund NOW!
  • Explore your insurance options before disaster strikes.
  • Always check your medical bills for errors.
  • Pay in cash or negotiate with your healthcare providers.
  • If you need to borrow money to cover healthcare costs, use a credit card or take out a safe installment loan from a responsible lender.
  • Stay FAR away from predatory lenders.

Ideally, we’d all live our lives in peace, without ever having to deal with the stress of a medical emergency. But that’s not going to happen. If you find yourself hurt, sick or injured and don’t know where to turn, you have options, and many of those options don’t include falling deep into debt.
