LANSING -- A Lansing man who's been having trouble finding a doctor who will take Medicaid patients just some help from the public.
News 10 did a story Wednesday about Curtis Wilson, who hasn't seen a doctor for a year-and-a-half and is running out of ostomy bags.
On Sunday, someone who saw that story got in-touch with Curtis and dropped off more than a year's supply of ostomy bags.
The viewer had lost a family member earlier in the year and had the bags left over.
"It is because of the story that I was blessed with such a generous donation by people I don't even know," Curtis told News 10. "Thank you and God bless."
Curtis said he's still struggling to find a doctor under his current Medicaid plan, but he expects to enroll in a new plan during open enrollment this spring.
President Obama's sweeping health care legislation would increase Medicaid reimbursement rates for doctors in an attempt to ease the problem for patients like Curtis.
