Do you Know what Indigent Care Is?? Google,(the Name of your county) 2011 Indigent Care Bill.<quoted text>
First of all you assume it is everyone's God given right to have paid for health care. Once again, someone pays for it....oh wait...no we borrow it...If you think the ACA is paid for, then you're a fool. No one was ever turned away from medical treatment who didn't have health insurance. How did we ever survive the past 200 years.....people worked.....what a strange concept. And the poor? Well, if they take a look at the deductibles for the ACA, their $10k deductible may as well be a million...if ya ain't got it, ya ain't got it.
Massachusetts has the highest health care costs of any of the states, Google that genius.
New Medicaid enrollees will out number ACA enrollees by this time next year. So, there's you're single payer system.
When this is all said and done, Medicaid will rule.
The Point is YOU Still Pay, nothing is FREE..
Hospitals and Doctors send the UNpaid Bills to the County and the County Pays the Bills with YOUR Tax Money. Usually your Property Tax Money. County Prisoners also come under Indigent Care.
The Only Way the Hospitals eat the UnPaid Bills is If the County is Bankrupt. Several Hospitals Closed in California for that reason. Bankrupt Counties....
