Help Us Reach Our Goal
I just found out from my physical therapist that I have to pay $1,500 to meet my deductible to keep getting physical therapy for my shoulder. I injured my shoulder as a passenger in a Lyft car around Thanksgiving. Lyft is financially liable for the damage to my shoulder but has been slow to get back to me.
Unfortunately, my health insurance, which I pay $320-a-month, out of pocket, is terrible. Meanwhile, I am still waiting on $950 worth of checks from GM strike coverage that have been delayed as a result of winter break.
Now, after paying my rent, my bills, and my editor for their work last month, I find myself struggling to even put together the money to keep my health insurance, let alone the deductible.
Meanwhile, Lyft has dragged their feet on reimbursing me for the missed work time (freelancers don’t get paid when they are sick) and for the medical costs.
This is terrible and this accident is ruining me financially as I am still in a lot of pain.
