AWESOME: Orlando Hospitals REFUSE to Bill Victims of Orland Terror Shooting

This is how a nation stands together. Incredible act of charity to these victims.

After a gunman killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub in June, survivors of the massacre faced a new nightmare: mounting medical bills.

Orlando Health and Florida Hospital hope to provide some relief to the survivors, and say they will not bill victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

The hospitals said Wednesday that survivors of the massacre will not have to pay for their medical expenses, which add up to millions of dollars.

In addition to the fatalities, 53 people were wounded when a gunman opened fire at the nightclub on June 12.

“Orlando Health has not sent any hospital or medical bills directly to Pulse patients and we don’t intend to pursue reimbursement of medical costs from them,” said Sabrina Childress, a spokeswoman for Orlando Health.

Orlando Health said it will also explore other options to help victims with ongoing medical costs.

“These include state and federal funds, private insurance, victim funds like the One Orlando fund, disability insurance, Florida’s crime victim compensation program, funding sources established for individual victims, means-tested programs like Medicaid, as well as charity care provided by Orlando Health,” the hospital said in a statement.
