Thanks for the feedback. I have spoken with them about that and with all the discounts its $10000 dollars. That is a large sum of money and if you do payments then you pay $12000 dollars & then make the rest in payments. I dont have that kind of money. There are other programs i have heard so please let me know someone has used a program that is considered charity.

A lack of health insurance makes getting medical care a real challenge.
You can discuss your inability to pay your medical bills with your health care provider and the business office of the hospital, where you are scheduled to have the surgical procedure. You might be able to negotiate a payment plan of paying a certain amount that you can afford over a period of time. You could contact the Department of Social Services for your state to inquire about financial assistance for medical bills or how to apply for Medicaid.
