Old habits are hard to break eh? Good news is that the hospitals will be getting paid for it's time rather than performing it's services "on the cuff."elections have consequences....and this one is a knee slapper!!!!!
'Emergency Visits Seen Increasing With Health Law'
'Supporters of President Obamas health care law had predicted that expanding insurance coverage for the poor would reduce costly emergency room visits because people would go to primary care doctors instead. But a rigorous new experiment in Oregon has raised questions about that assumption, finding that newly insured people actually went to the emergency room a good deal more often.'
ObamaCare (ACA) is a long range baby steps program with plenty of room for tweaking. It's not perfect but it's one he11 of a huge improvement over the status quo which really was killing this nations health care delivery system.
Long range means a tad more than three days don't you think?
