Grace Solution is seeking funding to complete and market its website to accept donations for patients unable to pay their medical bills.


My name is Michael Harris. My partner, Tom Keevers, and I started Grace Solution to address the growing need of people unable to pay their medical bills. We started our business at the Technology Innovation Center ( ), a business incubator based in Evanston, IL.

Currently, there are over 50 Million people in the United States that are unable to pay their medical bills. This situation is getting worse, without an obvious solution.

To address this need, Grace Solution offers a method for patients, unable to pay their medical bills, to get their medical bills paid by donations. Patients unable to pay their medical bills can Join Grace Solution at to create their Member Profile describing their situation. Patients have total control over their profile information. Patients are qualified through a hospital financial aid office.

Grace Solution markets the website to create public awareness. People visiting this Grace Solution website can then search Member Profiles for stories of interest and donate towards paying the medical bills. Grace Solution is promoted via social media by the patients family, friends, and co-workers.

Donations are administered by a non-profit organization and payments are made directly to the health care provider. Donors can search the Grace Solution site for a specific relative or friend and can make a donation to them via credit card. Grace Solution features Member Profile success stories of medical bills paid by donations.

We plan to launching our service in April 2011 and we are now trying to raise funds to complete the website and market its awareness to the public.

Our Progress To Date:

1. Google Health:
We have established a partnership with Google Health for the purpose of enabling all Google Health users to access our service for the purpose of helping patients get their pay medical bills paid through donations. We will be a service provider on the Google Health list of healthcare service providers.

2. Website Advertisement:
Grace Solution is approaching large corporations to advertise their healthcare services and products at the website to reach our target our estimated market of over 50 million people in the United States, unable to pay their medical bills.

3. Oprah Winfrey Network: OWN
Grace Solution has applied to OWN to create a series of episodes on OWN featuring patients unable to pay their medical bills. These episodes will feature the progress of patients profiled at the Grace Solution website. OWN viewers interested in donating will be directed to the Grace Solution website to make a donation.

4. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky:
Grace Solution is working closely with Jan Schakowsky's office to assist in supporting the recently passed Healthcare Bill. Grace Solution services are being made available to assist people with problems in paying their medical bills.
Please help us build out this useful and timely service to address this growing problem of patients unable to pay their medical bills. Thank you for your interest.
