Medical Bill Relief Grant Application

We are not currently accepting new applications. We will reopen on March 6, 2024.

We are sorry that you’re here. Whether you’ve just found out that you are unlikely to be able to have biological children or you’ve recently lost a child, we know that navigating this new normal can feel impossible and overwhelming. Our desire is that our grants can be a very small source of relief for you as you press forward in your grief.

Our application is currently closed. We will be accepting new applications on March 6, 2024. If you’d like to be notified when applications open, please fill out the form below and you will be notified in advance of the opening date. Grants are given on a first-come-first-serve basis, while funds last.

Eligibility Requirements

  1. You are a resident of North or South Carolina. If funds allow, those outside of Carolinas will be considered. You may still submit an application.
  2. You have an official medical bill that shows patient responsibility after insurance has been applied. Services performed need to be shown as they relate to pregnancy loss (prenatal, D/C or D/E), infant loss (including NICU stay) or any infertility discovery appointments (consultations, testing, labs, ultrasounds, etc.). At this time, we do not cover expenses for fertility treatments. You may need to request an itemized bill from your healthcare provider or fertility clinic to get this type of bill.
  3. Medical bill is dated, noting services performed within the last 12 months.

Medical Bill Relief Grant Application

We are currently accepting applications from our waitlist. Applications will open to the public on March 6, and will close at midnight on April 10.

We are sorry that you’re here. Whether you’ve just found out that you are unlikely to be able to have biological children or you’ve recently lost a child, we know that navigating this new normal can feel impossible and overwhelming. We hope that our grant can be a very small source of relief for you as you press forward in your grief.

We will select grant recipients by April 26, 2024. Do not pay any medical bills until you have heard from us. If you have one that is due before April 26, call to ask for an extension or get on a payment plan. If you are selected, we will reimburse you for any payments made.

Please fill out the application below and someone from our team will be in touch if any additional information is needed. If you have any questions, you can reach out to Brittany Facinoli, our co-founder, at brittany@outoftheashes5k.com.
