Happy to hear your OK.
As long as you come away with something like "appreciate what you got, while you got it" , it's a life lesson.

I think you would have been better off with something like this:

Hey!!! That kinda stuff is bad for the rest of us.

Man, those hospital bills are rediculous sometimes. But if you talk to the billing office and fill out a whole bunch of paperwork and throw a hissy fit from time to time... it gets reduced ALOT...

Trust me, I've done it...

Kat,

Did you have medical insurance at last job before they fired you? If so, you may be eligible still under COBRA. I'm not an HR or Employee Benefits person but it still may be worth investigating. The premiums are usually pretty high but in your case, may be the lesser of two evils.

Do we have anyone here that knows COBRA regs? Contact your past employer and ask if you're still eligible to sign up for Medical. Doesn't hurt to ask. If you are, chances are that it's retroactive to when you left.

Good Luck.

My understanding is that you have to apply for COBRA coverage up front when you leave your employer. I'm doubt any insurance will cover any pre-coverage bills. His best bet is to contact a social worker and hospital financial person to help negotiate something as a indigent Florida citizen (county level or state level welfare type plan). He'll need some level of coverage for any future care he needs. If he's permanently disabled from these injuries he may have medicaid or medicare coverage available to him as well.

I'm trying not to literally rub salt into the wounds, but:
1) riding a motorcycle = dangerous
2) riding a motorcycle as documented on these boards = idiotic
3) riding a motorcycle as documented on these boards without health insurance = irresponsible
4) surviving stated accident = hopefully a wake-up call to seriously contemplate said activities

Those are the kind of pics you see or if you pass something like that on the highway, you usually assume the person died

You are a lucky man

I thought there was a grace period but could be wrong. In either case, it sounds like it unfortunately lapsed.

Lucky isn't the half of it. I would say you're Blessed.

You picked a good spot to go in. The downward slope combined with the grass and sand gave you a decent landing spot to bleed off that 40MPH of energy your body was carrying.

BTW, glad to hear that your bike days are over. Better on this bike than a Busa.
