My mother is a visitor to USA and she got sick and the doctor said she needs a heart surgery, I'm a US-Citizen and I work in a Hospital, is there any way for my mom to do this life threatining surgery here if she doesn't have insurance, residency or social security number ?
There are free clinics, but they don't cover everything and those who benefit generally have rules that they have to be here for a certain amount of time and long enough to do follow up work afterward as well.
