All medical costs should be paid for by your personal health insurance. Any co-pays that are required will have to be paid by you at the outset. If you are uninsured, depending on your income, you may apply for emergency Medicaid. If you are uninsured and make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, you should apply for health insurance immediately.
