Update on Andy's cancer surgery: donations needed.
Edited on Thu Apr-28-05 04:00 PM by sfexpat2000
Folks,

One of our DUers was able, through her wonderfulness, to get Andy into Johns Hopkins. The surgery is set for early the second week of May. This is the best venue for Andy and it's nothing short of miraculous that we've gotten this far.

While we're working to see if we can get a fee reduction, as of this minute, they want $25K up front. I wrestled with the finance department and that's the best deal I could get. I need to check back in with the hospital TOMORROW.

So, the clock is ticking and I need to raise this money. Andy's surgery cannot be put off.

If you are in any way able to contribute, please send a check or a money order to:


Andy Stephenson
P O Box 25624
Seattle, WA 98165-1124

via Paypal:

Andy_Stephenson@comcast.net

And if you are sending something, please PM me if you can so I can do the math.

Most of us don't have that kind of money sitting around. But please, think about something you might be willing to skip once -- like a trip to the Mall -- and send your check. If we each just do a little, it adds up as we have seen time and again. (Go! DU!)

I know I owe Andy a debt of gratitude for his work on securing our elections. I'm sure many of you have followed his work and feel the same way.

We thank the Admins for letting me post this here, to their board. This is not their project and we're very grateful for their forbearance.

Beth

1271. REDEEM YOUR PENNIES! Everyone has a jar of pennies!
I was just thinking about this. I have jars of pennies around the house - here,there and everywhere. Roll them and take them to your bank to redeem and send that money to Andy. Or, if you are like me and hate to roll coins, go to CoinStar and redeem them.

Pennies add up and everyone has a bunch of pennies here and there.

14. Andy Stephenson is a DUer who has worked tirelessly for election reform
Edited on Thu Apr-28-05 04:08 PM by arnheim
He has surgery but no health insurance - a common problem in our society.

He has done so much in the field of election reform that he's become an expert in it. He has worked his butt off to insure that we have the right to vote and have it counted accurately.

He's a good guy, one of the best.

23. Andy has a pancreatic tumor and must have surgery. He has no health
insurance. He is a hero who has been a major front-line fighter in voting reform and exposing the stolen elections for years. He lives in Seattle and through miraculous arrangements is having his surgery done at the best place for it. Pancreatic cancer is one of the worst kinds, but it has been caught early enough that he has a chance if he is treated with great skill and knowledge. So this is a lifesaving cause.

15. By the way, I do medical billing work for a living
What is the surgery? I may be able to find out what the Medicare rate would be and see if you can negotiate from that point.

I'm assuming he has no insurance.

26. I know that, but I can tell you what the established rate is
One of the ways a lot of hospitals make money these days is by absolutely hammering uninsured patients.

As most of you know, if you are covered under an HMO or PPO, your plan negotiates fixed rates at the hospital. If I go in for appendicitis surgery under BlueCross, Hospital X may get $2500.00. If you go in under United Healthcare, Hospital X may get $2750.00. The billed amount may be $6000.00 but that does not matter.

However, if an uninsured patient goes in, he or she is charged the full $6000.00. It's a crazy system.

Anyway, one of the starting points for negotiating these contracts is what Medicare would pay. There's formulas that use the medicare rate as a constant.

Anyway, I'm curious as to what Hopkins would get if Andy had insurance.

... is fairly simple to negotiate. might take a day or two for registration to complete, but then, there you are!

i signed up several years ago, & have found it pretty easy to use.
being both sequence- & cyber-challenged (understatement) if i can trek through their little process, i'd say most anybody could!

here's to all us mirror-balancing financial wizards :toast:

59. AMAZON: Since we just set up the account, it may take a day
or so to be finalized.

Snail mail works. Mostly, I'm needing to know what you good people are sending in -- to prep for talking to the hospital tomorrow.

And I can't wait to do that. :silly:

surely, we can at least average $25 each! If someone can't afford that much, send what you can, and others will pick up the slack! Andy has worked hard for OUR VOICE, and it's time to take care of him.

ask for more than you can in an open-ended type of situation, and you can never count on a 100% take rate. But yes, every dollar counts. Absolutely.

63. Here are some cost links:
JH charged about $26k in 1995 for this, so $50k was about right. JH was actually cheaper than lesser hospitals because of volume. He definitely wants to be at JH because the survival rate is 6X better there than surrounding hospitals.

At any rate, here are some links that may be useful. In addition, finding the Medicare negotiated rate would be useful, as someone mentioned before. Also, w/ cancer, there sometimes are studies you can enroll in to wipe out some debt -- they track you for a number of years, etc. (Don't know in this case, of course.)

some gauze--

but that clamp, gauze, or barf-bucket will be full of best wishes.





A--I'm having a crappy day---a "no mental health day", as I like to call 'em. Sending you some bucks and good wishes just shook me out of it. Thanks, dude!

70. This is why we need singler payer health insurance.
People, like Andy, shouldn't have to worry about this and John Hopkins shouldn't have to demand $25,000 up front. I wonder how many have died because they were turned away because they couldn't meet the fee.

100. If any of us are friends with progressives who have serious money
Just give them the link to this thread. If they are active progressives they probably know all about Andy already. It would be great if we could find people who could easily spare some real money, so we could raise this sum in bigger chunks.

161. I am going to write a check to Andy. But, allow me to VENT,...
The SCOTUS ruled that it is "cruel and unusual punishment" for prisoners to be denied health care. Hence, all prisoners receive dental, visual and full health CARE.

I propose that, it is "cruel and unusual punishment" for any American to be denied health care. The U.S.A. is the most wealthy nation on the face of the earth. How can that wealthy nation deny health care tho the citizens that are the foundation of its wealth?

There is something really rucked-up,...about THAT

221. I just tried to pay through Amazon and got this ERROR MESSAGE just now:
Edited on Fri Apr-29-05 02:22 AM by Nothing Without Hope
"Recipient Unable to Receive Payments
We are not able to continue with this transaction because the recipient is unable to receive payments through the Amazon Honor System at this time.
Please try again at a later time."

I will check this thread tomorrow and see what is happening - then try the Amazon link again. It's the way I'd prefer to donate and it should be possible to get it going again.

Andy, you are a national treasure and we are among the ones privileged to know it early. And you are still a cutie, too! It's easy to recognize you in the expression and the eyes of that little red-haired fella in the sink.

244. Is emergency medicaid eligibility an option?
Some State Health Departments can speed through medicaid certification for emergency situations. Forgive me if this has already been explored, but if Andy has been unemployed long enough he may well qualify. If JH would take medicaid for the procedure and Maryland would qualify Andy (would likely require him to begin some residency procedures)....

Just a thought.

264. Here is what I am sending to these groups:
Andy Stephenson, election reform hero, needs your help. Andy Stephenson is an activist who has been fighting the BBVs for years now. His tireless efforts have helped so many people learn about black box voting and how dangerous it is to the country.

Andy has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is scheduled for surgery at Johns Hopkins. Like many Americans, Andy has no health insurance and he desperately needs our help. The cancer was found early so his chances of recovery are great if he has the surgery now. Johns Hopkins requires the $25,000 for the surgery up front something that any American would have difficulty complying with if asked.

Please read the truthout.org article about Andys situation: http://forum.truthout.org/blog/story/2005/2/24/84720/34... .

If you are in any way able to contribute, please don't hesitate.

1) via USPS:
send a check or a money order to:
Andy Stephenson
P O Box 25624
Seattle, WA 98165-1124

2) via Paypal:
(You must have a Paypal account)
http://www.paypal.com /
After logging in, choose "Send Money" and
enter Andy's email address as the recipient
Andy_Stephenson@comcast.net

3) via Amazon
http://s1.amazon.com/exec/varzea/ts/my-pay-page/P2TRHRV...
Just enter the amount and click "pay now"


!!!IMPORTANT!!!
If you are sending something, please email Beth if you can so she can do the math.
Send your email to Beth at info@dougzilla.com

Thanks!

I haven't been able to do much. This thread makes me feel good about DU and why I'm a Progressive.

Andy once called me without even knowing who I was and gave me some real help on election reform. I have never forgotten it.

If we come up with more, we'll send it. Commission only sales sucks sometimes.

Best wishes to you Andy, and I'm so proud of DU'ers that care so much for others!!

The lyrics from that song from way back comes to mind:

"We are family......"

Just a suggestion: Start a new thread and soon, 300 responses is way too long for a dial up person to even connect on.

I understand they said one thread. But maybe they'll let us have another, and let this one sink.

340. Thermometer person leaving the building for a few...
hours... Have to go see my mother who is in the hospital (she has a badly infected leg, but not as serious as something like this, and she has health insurance at age 87 thank goodness!)

OK GUYS, let's see you FILL UP THE FIRST THERMOMETER by the time I get back... I want to start a new one!

Good luck, Andy. I'm still thinking about you!

On edit: I have to say that it sucks that we can't get the health care we need without tons of money...ARRRGGGH! Even hassling with bureaucratic red tape is overwhelming to a sick person. Trust me. I am the tape-wrestling champion this month. Sigh.

Andy, I hope someone can help you with your tape-wrestling. It's not easy to do when you're sick. Someone out there helping you, Andy?

364. I did call Attila the Accounting Lady,
and told her how much we had done.

She gave me a SHORT extension. But, she needs the dough to put Andy in the system.

So, kick for Andy and all our wonderful DUers and voting reform activists that are emailing me, too!

There is a thread in the Lounge called "Dupe," which has over 1100 replies, last time I checked.

However, it might be nice if the admins gave permission to open a new thread for Andy soon, since users on dialup are having problems loading this one.

You may want to pmail the mod and ask for a new one. It will be hard for dial up folks to access.

Can you imagine them offering this kind of support to one of their own?

i mean, don't they just all think that if you get sick without health insurance it's just proof you're evil? if they have the equivalent of "Tombstoning" folks, they should get it just for ever ADMITTING that someone NEEDS help, right? "Pull yerself up by yer own durn bootstraps," and all that cr*p.

417. Okay, Matching Funds DUers! So far, you sent:
Edited on Fri Apr-29-05 07:10 PM by sfexpat2000
$205, for a total of $410 with matching funds.

New grand total: $7613.00 -- if we can cook $205 into $1000 by the end of the night.

(I think I just committed math! :silly: )

Kick it for Andy! Save him from himself! Bev must go!

423. ok have i begged lately????
ok..i am now on my knees begging...noooo not a monica..


i am begging for our love andy....are you laughing..if you are..donate!!!

i am willing to make a damn fool of myself if you donate!!!

come onnnnnnnnnnnnnn Du'ers...you can do this...remember..it is we who are the real family values people...if the rw was for family values we would have national health insurance like every nation in the world..including 3rd world countries...

did you know that our tax dollars are going to provide the citizens of iraq with national health insurance...

but not to worry..the rw says ..screw you!!

ok now i have done my little rant...how about donating...a dollar is great if thats all you have..if you smoke..give them up for a day for andy..
i already told andy if we get this done..i am quitting smoking..so if you do it for no other reason..think about it ..i will be one less smoker in this world!!

i love all you du'ers....

430. 6:25 p.m.PST: $8223
An anonymous DUer donated $500 to become Andy's first anonymous Andy's Gang Patriot. He opted out of having this donation matched.

In matched funds, you've donated $110.00

Our new grand total is $8,223.00, and we still can match $730.00 tonight and double the money.

Help me kick this, good people!

439. Hopkins DOES have Charity Care programs in place.
They talk about it on the website:

http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/about/healthcaredelivery...

"The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Outpatient Center
Rated best hospital in the nation year after year for excellence in every specialty, this flagship of Hopkins Medicine includes such renowned centers as the Brady Urological Institute, the Wilmer Eye Institute, the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Johns Hopkins Childrens Center and Heart Institute. Drawing patients from around the world, Hopkins Hospital also provides more charity care than any other hospital in Baltimore. Its nurses have achieved coveted Magnet Status. Located across from the hospital and connected to it by an underground concourse, the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center includes facilities for diagnostic testing and imaging and outpatient surgery."

If you are helping Andy with his billing call the patient accounts people and demand that they talk to you about the charity care program. A lot of hospitals work very hard to limit access to those programs, but they DO exist, and they can help a GREAT deal with the medical bills.

Pay attention to what they say about the program because there are a LOT of ways they try and discourage patients from seeking charity care. If they give you any shit at all ask them if their tax exemptions are tied in any way to provision of charity care. They BETTER take you seriously on this, because they have both a federal AND a state obligation to the medically indigent (not to mention a moral one.)

There have been class action lawsuits filed nationwide because of lack of provision of charity care for the uninsured.

PM me if you want more details. I have been fighting on this issue for about the last three years.

466. I refuse to use PayPal... So I sent in a check
One on the most emotional heart-wrenching words you can hear is 'I'm sorry my friend, you have <this health problem> and it is serious". I am absolutely not religious, but the first words you say is 'oh god....".

Yes Mr. Andy has done alot for our democracy. I wish him the absolute best and successfully recovery.

I feel for the people, you, your family, your friends, people you do not even know who do not have health insurance. Even with health insurance, with the way the most richest nation in the world could give a fuck about your health, with the way the new bankruptcy bill could care less about health reasons, basically says 'we don't care if you suffer and/or die. Mother fucker - just gimme your money'.

I feel for the poor people who don't have the Internet, the popularity, 'the known', as they cannot raise the $25,000 or more to simply survive.

I, as my humanity literally dictates, feel for all the people who are sick. It troubles me tremendously that maybe the reason Mr. Andy is sick is because of the pollution in our air, water, and food. These are fundamental to all our survival. It is like taking a vial of chemicals and putting them in a glass of water, saying it is safe, and drinking it.

I can only hope that I 'go' quickly, as I don't have the popularity to have people donate...

We need to fix this folks...
