Grants For Medical Procedures – Overview
Health is one of the most valuable things in life. Every man, woman and child should have the opportunity to get the best treatment to ensure their good health.
However, due to financial constraints, there are situations where people are forced to compromise on getting basic healthcare services which tend to affect their health adversely.
In most serious medical conditions, a large portion of the money is spent on medical expenses which strain the already stretched financial conditions of many middle and lower-class families in the US.
Fortunately, for those who find themselves in such a situation, there is great news in the form of grants for medical procedures which are provided by the state/federal governments, corporations, educational and research institutes, as well as nonprofit organizations and philanthropic individuals.
This is a type of financial aid that is granted free of cost and does not need to be returned as it is not a loan.
However, not many people are aware of these incredibly monetary aids as many times, the organizations and individuals do not advertise the grant.
How can grants for medical procedures help me?
The amount of money granted to people in need varies. The grant of medical procedures may cover the entire expense, or part of, the amount required for the necessary medical treatment.
As with any other similar grant, the grants for medical procedures are also disbursed to patients after strict and close scrutiny and analysis by the granter.
There are several specific criteria that the patient needs to fulfill to successfully get the grant for medical treatments.
According to the type of grant, the criteria include details of citizenship, physical conditions, annual income, urgency for needing treatment as well as other similar details.
Where to apply for grants for medical procedures?
In the US, almost every state has a public healthcare plan in place to provide prompt medical services to those who qualify for it.
The most common criterion for successfully receiving such grants is that the applicant needs to be a resident of the state.
The second common criterion for state-funded grants for medical procedures is the annual income of the applicant, which is meant for those who fall under the destitute.
Applicants who are certified disabled, old aged or in need of urgent medical treatment are given priority when it comes to grants for medical procedures.
Where to apply for grants for medical procedures?
As mentioned above, there are several sources to get grants for medical procedures. Here are details of the different sources where you can apply for grants for medical procedures and ensure top healthcare for you:
There are several philanthropic private foundations and financial trusts that have been established to help the deserving get the best healthcare services and medical treatments.
Most of these foundations are focused on helping patients suffering from specific medical disorders, such as cancer or other serious medical conditions.
Some of these foundations restrict the grant money to patients from within the state while others offer grants for medical procedures to applicants from across the country.
Corporation Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiatives
Apart from private organizations, several large and small business corporations also offer grants for medical procedures as part of their CSR initiative.
Most large, multinational pharmaceutical and medical companies are involved in providing such grants to patients in need.
Some corporations may provide grants to customers who are unable to purchase their essential medicines.
Nonprofit Organizations and Hospitals
There are numerous nonprofit organizations and hospitals across the US that are focused on improving the healthcare infrastructure of the country by providing discounted or free medical treatments to patients through grants for medical procedures.
There are several federal financial initiatives in the healthcare sector which provide grants directly to hospitals and help to lessen the total cost of expensive medical treatments for people in need.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) ranks as the top provider of federal medical grants to the healthcare sector in the US and has helped tens of thousands to receive prompt and effective medical treatments.
To avail of grants for medical procedures, you can discuss it with your local physician, visit the nearest community healthcare center or do a simple Google search and find the organization or individual from where you can successfully receive the grants for medical procedures.
If you are unable to get a grant from the government and nonprofit organizations you always have an option to apply for a loan for medical procedures

“However, due to financial restrictions, there are instances where people are forced to sacrifice their health conditions and then restrained from giving their bodies their due care. In cases like this, what happens is that the financial resources are spent on medical expenses instead on the basic life necessities like food and clothing.”

To whom it may concern,
My name is Daniel. I am a father and a husband and was the provider of my family until I started getting horrible pains in my back and leg. My employer closed and I was forced to get unemployment. At the same time I was finding it harder and harder to walk and perform normal activities including any type of work. I have share of cost Medicaid and cant find a doctor to even see me. I have paid out of pocket to a pain management doctor for medication, two epidural steroid injection, office visits, and an MRI. The doctor says I have a herniated disc in L-5 and it is also affecting the nerve in my left leg so the entire left (back to leg area) is in severe pain. He tells me that I need surgery, and I have no way of paying for that type of procedure out of pocket. I don’t know where else to turn, but I cant stay this way forever. I am only 34 yrs of age. I hope this reaches the right person as I can’t think of where else to look. Please contact me and let me know if there is any help for my situation. Thank You. Daniel
I am a young senior citizen who, by the advice of my cardiologist, had gastric by-pass surgery in September 2012. I have sucessfully lost approximately 80 lbs.; yet, I have a heavy skirt that lies on my bladder and groin areas causing extreme pressure, pain, heat, perspiration, and rash.
I receive a limited income from Social Security Disability and can not afford the necessay surgery to correct this problem; therefore, I am in search of a possible grant or donor to assist me with the financing of this surgery.
I was recently diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia. It is actually a failure of a surgical repair done in the late 80s. I have no medical insurance of any kind and the estimate for corrective surgery is between $5,700-6,000. It is rather painful and I really don’t want to put it off longer than necessary. Thank you for your help.
I am a 34 year old single female that is in need of surgery for obesity. I have been obese all of my life and have been on many different diet programs with no results. My medical doctor has decided that the best option for me is to have surgery to help eliminate most of my problems, high blood pressure, back pain, migrane headaches ,and at high risk for heart disease and diabetes. I work for the State of Texas and have health insurance, but it will not cover much of the surgery. I need 5,000.00 to have this surgery using my insurance or 6,000.00 to have the surgery done without the insurance. As you can see, if you pay cash, there is a big difference in the amount to be paid if you pay the 6,000.00 and I can get the surgery done right away. If, however, I use the insurance, I may have to wait another year to have the surgery, because of their guidelines. Please advise if there is any possibility that I can recieve help with this matter.
I am a 57 year old male. I have been disabled for almost 3 years due to a severely dislocated coccyx and extreme degenerative disk disease in my lumbar. Both problems occurred from a severe fall on the ice. I cannot sit (at all) cannot stand for more than 15 minutes and spend 30% of my income on various therapies (all which only give temporary relief) There is a ‘artificial disk replacement procedure’ that has been performed on hundreds of thousands of people from around the world in Germany. I have a liason I have been in contact with who coordinates Americans who want their backs actually fixed so they can function again and can provide any and all necessary documentation to prove that I qualify. I will not have the standard ‘recommended fusion surgery’ performed as I have done all the research and know how devastating it is for the vast majority of patients who undergo it. My family consists of myself 24K/year ssdi, my wife who makes about 45K/year, my 82 year old mother and my 18 year old daughter who we are paying for college. The estimate for the procedure is about 50-60 thousand dollars. Can you help in any way?

I have been struggling as a single mother, RN, and friend for over five years with CRPS. This invisible disability has torn apart my family, all of my friends no longer call or come over. I have one person in my life that is willing to help me survive day to day at this point. I am worried about loosing my job, due to not being able to focus from the pain that I am in. I have been on narcotic medications for five years due to thee fact that there is no other treatment that my doctors know of at this time. I went to a pain specialist and they have also tried all types of injections, ablations, and tests on my nerves, none of which worked. I was able to have a trial run for three days with a spinal stimulator attached to very specific nerves in my spine. It was the best that I had felt in years. My pain was gone with this stimulator. My doctors have ordered that I get this placed permanently at this time, due to my condition worsining. I do have insurance, but I know that their will be a large out of pocket cost that I will have to pay before being able to have this procedure complted. I am asking if you can please help me with this and save my life, and forever give my children their mother back. Please consider me for this grant. I know that CRPS is not looked at by the medical industry as a terminal illness, but I can tell you that I know why the numbers for suicide with chronic pain patients is so high. This seems terminal to me. I would never harm myself due to having my children here that need me. They are the sun and the moon for me at this time.

I am a 63 yr.old female who recently had an emergency room visit with excruciating pain and vomiting. A urologist was called in. I had a stent put into my ureta tube as it was crimped. After the procedure the doctor came in to talk about the condition of my right kidney, which apparently is not functioning. At my next Dr. appointment he talked about removal of my right kidney. He also knows that I don’t have a very good health plan (obamacare). He is encouraging me to find ways to pay for this surgery. I am looking everywhere for help. I am not eligible for medicare. I work full time and my husband is on social security. I am worried about my health but am more worried about the cost. I guess you could say I am the bread winner right now. Please let me know what I need to do to apply for such a grant that would help with medical procedures. Thanking you in advance. Kathleen Tyler

I am needing two scopes done on account of my stomach but dont have the money to pay for it. I need it done bad. So they can see where the bleeding is coming from. I would so much apprecitate the help. Thank you.
I am 23 years old and have been suffering from TMD since 2010 after the removal of my wisdom teeth. My condition has progressively gotten worse after my mugging in 2014 by receiving multiple blows to the side of my face. There is a treatment call Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy which has been proven to work on multiple cases. I need to get this treatment so I can live a day to day without having extreme pain from taking, eating, or laughing. It would be wonderful to wake up and not have the pain related to this disorder such as migraines, back pain, neck pain, lack of hearing in my right ear, pressure and popping when I use my jaw.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
