this is amazing! for a hospital that dogs people for the money they owe, they act like their on the verge of bankruptcy! don't go to the er if u owe them money, u could be on the verge of death and they will come in there and tell you that you owe them.there is people out there that has been told that they have to pay before they will be seen.lets face it, they are all about money, not the welfare of their patients. the er should not be used as a doctors office, however, some people don't have a private dr. they should change he name to "dowecheatemandhow medical center".

Last week I went to Koch clinic
For my first visit. They said in order to see Dr. I had to pay 30.00. My sliding fee un be known to me had gone up from 15 to 30.00. I had no money and they said when I have the money I can see the Dr. Wow. People use the clinic because they have no money. how can they turn away people?

Just more tax money thrown at the Granite welfare trash. A better investment would be to deport them

I have Insurance and I am asked to pay my CoPay upfront before I am seen by my Dr. Then my Insurance pays the remainder. How can people sit on here and bitch and gripe about having to pay a small fee upfront when that is all that will be paid, since they have no insurance? Wow talking about biting the hand that feeds! You people do understand that hospitals, Dr.'s and Medical Clinics are there to make money right? The problem is you are so used to having your sorry asses given a free ride you have started to expect it!!!!!!! Get a job with Insurance or pay your piddly little fee and be happy you get medical treatment at all!!!!!!!!!

But, but but...having to pay co-pays interferes with their ability to buy drugs, go to Eddies or do whatever the usual Granite trash does with their money. We can thank these fine peices of trash for getting out every election day too voting in the politicians that make it possible for these moochers to continue to do it too. In this case, Costello and the madco Democrats are the usual suspects

You sound like the hog from Dupo. What's her name, Ugly Effie or Monya. That is a woman about the size of Frankenstien and just about as attractive.

To some people on a limited income $30 is no small fee. Usually the ones that want to be freeloaders are because they get a medical card and don't have to pay anything!

Brian you are one sick puppy. You go all over Topix forums and all you do is type hateful trash. Not everyone needing help is a freeloader. Sometimes circumstances happen in life that take all of someone's money through no fault of their own. Many try the best they can not to go on aid. Let's hope none of you are ever in that circumstance. Many people dissing democrats use aid themselves, but will never admit it. You'd make more sense if you dissed the bankers who took all of your tax money for their bailout welfare plan GB gave them. Costs you much more than street welfare does. That's too hard to wrap your pinheads around to understand high finance though.

According to a Senate study released last week the median income of an individual in the USA is 25.01 per year. Another Senate study found that the average person on welfare receives benefits at the rate of 30.60 per hour per year. So the average welfare leech now gets benefits far in excess of the working person these days. Don't tell me about these so called poor people...they are living better than the workers.

Well you know what, sometimes the copay plus 20% of the entire medical bill is alot for a working person to pay also. I am sorry but I feel you should be thankful if all you have to pay is a $30 fee. Instead you want it for free!!!!!!

FYI, I am a working tax paying citizen, I have health insurance that pays very well. Gateway is a "For Profit" facility,my issue is that they dog people that owe them money telling them they have to check with the business office before they can be seen and have to pay up front. Gateway is in the wrong town to be a for profit hospital.

Anyone that operates in Granite without demanding payment of front borders on lunacy.

Copay is copay. Period. My kids have seen dr Donna their whole lives. I love this place. Glad they are getting into a new building. Keeps from having to be right by the hope clinic.
