Over the years The Island Gift of Life has provided various services for those in need of financial or ancillary support. To better understand what we do, here are some specific examples of cases. Of course, the identity of our patients is not revealed as we adhere strictly to the medical privacy laws (HIPPA Regulations).
Travel expenses to Boston Children's Hospital for a child
with rare bone disease. Also brokered a deal with the hospital
to lower an outstanding bill. Paid a significant portion of that bill.
Covered a significant portion of uninsured expenses for
a patient with Lung Cancer.
Through direct negotiations both with Doctors and Hospitals
we have decreased many other outstanding bills for our
patients, in some cases by as much as 75%.
We assisted a severely debilitated patient with Multiple
Sclerosis by arranging and paying for frequent custodial
visits, installing a Med Alert system, applying for disability
insurance and making the residence more handicapped accessible.
Our Foundation paid for postoperative rehabilitation for a
patient after bone marrow (stem cell) transplant.
