Is GiveForward only for uninsured & underinsured?
Most of the users on GiveForward actually have full health insurance. But even with health insurance, out-of-pocket expenses for a disease like cancer for example average $8,500 per year for co-pays, prescription medicines, lost wages, travel to appointments, and other expenses. Creating a GiveForward page for someone you love isn’t just about the funds raised. Seeing all the love, support and words of encouragement from friends can also help the healing process in an enormously uplifting way. The reality is that nearly all Americans regardless of income or insurance will be battling bills when a crisis happens. Almost everyone can use an extra helping hand in these situations and a GiveForward page empowers friends and family to help.
