Malo lava Keniseli for continuing to request transparency and accountability from our government leaders...regarding the state of desired but absent "affordable" health coverage...
WHICH without a doubt impacts people's accessibility to health and medical services.
I have been told that a visit to the LBJ hospital requires a $50.00 payment! From $2.00,$5.00.$10.00...then $20.00 after regular operational hours....
now slap the blazes outta the peoples pockets with the increased fee...omgoodness. With the increase in the cost of living...stagnant issue on the issue of raising the minimum wage, the economic downturn....this fee increase is just ...another harsh yet SAD economic fact and reality in the Territory.
Some may not be able to afford it...but should not be refused or denied medical assistance.. service or help when it is an emergency.
