Baloney. You implied they go to the ER to save co-pay.

If it is an emergency, the insurance will cover that emergency room visit. If its not, they won't.

It says so right in my policy handbook

LIBERALS BRAIN DEAD LOGIC:

After any Liberal created incident:

#1. Try to first blame the Tea Party. Example: Sarah Palin on Guildford's shooting, NY Time Square bombing, etc)

#2. If #1 fails then look at skin color. Example: Zimmerman "white" Hispanic,, etc.

#3. If #2 fails then blame gun!

Notice that right on cue, Sonicfilter is blaming the guns, as expected!

"I seriously doubt people stop into the Emergency Room for a check up."
You doubt wrong. You need to hang out in an ER of a community hospital sometime,(maybe volunteer some of your time) your delusions would be quickly squashed.
I hear people talking now that they can't get into a doctor's office for two months. So why not go to the emergency room. There are so few general practitioners and on top of it, many are not accepting new patients. Concierge doctoring will explode under O'bamacare. No insurance required, just pay the bill. It will cut down on visits too. Health insurance is a gate-way drug to poor health as far as I am concerned.

Not to mention that they get free healthcare if they can't afford (or choose not) to pay. The hospital offers MANY low-cost/free health clinics, but they don't bother to go to those... they just show up at our door for anything and everything.

Galt is opposed to abortion after the fetus is viable. Before then the question is purely religious and not medical. Just don't try to impose your religion on others.
Galt my question was simple Who should speak for the Unborn? You brought into the Liberal argument anyone that oppose abortion are religious fanatics (Not True) its the same argument Liberals use that those that disagrees with Obama are Racist!! NOT TRUE!!

Galt did not miss the point. Most insurance policies have substantial co-pays for emergency room visits...in particular the ObamaKKKare policies from the exchanges typically have an emergency room co-pay in the $250 range....


But they can't be refused treatment if they don't have the money to pay it. Once they are treated many don't pay.

Just because you share a trash can with a primate doesn't make you a judge of character, genetics, intelligence or even of culture.
It just makes you a zoo attendant.
You guys just get dumber by the nanosecond. "As a member of the superfamily Hominoidea, man is in fact just another primate species with African origins and differs physically only in degree from some..." You didn't know that (what kind of highly educated professional are you playing here?), and with all your apparent obsession with zoos, you think primates' habitat is trash can equivalence...maybe I'll reconsider the Grumpy Old Pricks designation for GOP and refer in the future to Gormless Obsolete Primates...

You didn't tell me your opinion.

A fetus' heartbeat begins spontaneously in the very early stages of development - a medical and scientific fact. Do you think the beating of a human heart indicates life? Or not?

Most people I know have insurance and can go to the emergency room for nothing. I did not know that they now have to pay. Please excuse.:) I prefer to use a hospital unless one of these medicated liberals in a Prius trys to run over me.

Do you have any idea how many people never pay their medical bills? And even if they owe a community hospital thousands of dollars, if you show up at the ER, they cannot refuse to treat you.

In Chicago there are free everythings every where. I always wonder why anyone needs insurance for hundreds a month with all these walgreens, walmart and target doctor offices in every store. Certainly they will give them a kleenex.:) People can go there for 50 dollars. You know get your milk and get a script. LOL

We're all celebrating Obama's tremendous diplomatic victory over Putin and his second Nobel Peace prize.
The surface to surface missiles and an important part of the explosive devices were tracked to Russia perhaps through Iran which chimed in quickly with a disclaimer.

DaBammy, Kerry, US intel with an assist from France ran a game on Putin and the Assad brothers. Not sure it's worthy of a Nobel but you can bet that Putin got taken to school.
