How so? I said "shouldn't", as in, stating an opinion. If somebody owns a piece of property outright, they shouldn't be forced to insure it for it's value. If something happens and they lose it, tough tata's.
So you have a piece of property with your little dream house and it's all paid for. Someone visiting you is accidently in a fall and injured for life or your cute little doggie attacks a child and incures six figure doctor and hospital bills along with future surgeries. A judgement against you without insurance may leave you and your family out in the street. Is that tough tatas too?

The problem is really where flooding and hurricane-related destruction csme into the picture. People were losing their homes and demanding compensation from the Federal government in the form of federal disaster aid, once the designation as a "disaster area" was made. Since Hurricane Andrew or so, there have been catastrophic losses, which we ALL have paid for via our taxes. I'm not sure if we were also hammered via our homeowner's insurance expenses. I believe we were, as the insurance companies had to make up for the massive payouts they made, so they spread it out.

Now those people building/buying in designated flood zones are out of luck if they don't buy federal flood insurance and don't have a mortgage company demanding it of them.

It always irked me to see people building these uber-expensive houses on the beach, only to see them destroyed and rebuilt, over and over again. Some areas simply shouldn't be built on IF the homeowner is unwilling to pay for replacement insurance. There's no reason those costs should be spread over the rest of us taxpayers or policy holders, IMO. They take the risk, they should pay the price.

Absolutely true. If you have a beachfront property in a flood zone where the insurance is subsidiced by the rest of us, then we need to have more deregulation of insurance policies. This sounds mostly like another unfunded mandate to me.

Actually, it is you who has extremely poor communication skills. You write these half-assed sentences that are just thrown together and expect everyone to fill in the blanks. We aren't mind readers. You should have specified what transpired when we first discussed this. Instead, all you did was spin and avoid and post cryptic, circular posts. You never mentioned anyone needing to bring things in the "next day," for example.
!!
Initially I said that if you end up in the hospital and have no way to pay, you will be given Medicaid insurance. I know of many people who were in that situation and that is how the cost was resolved.

Of course I was told I was wrong even though I was there, so I tried to explain further which was of course a waste of time. Her last post still says "prove it". I don't have to because it doesn't matter to anyone but the person in need.

In this case, the paperwork might have been green-lighted by MCD because of the t4rminal nature of the illness--he certainly wasn't going to be able to get a job and help pay off the bill. But it is hardly indicative of the average experience.

I also know many spanish girls who go to the nearest emergency room because they are pregnant. Guess what happens?

The taxpayer ends up paying for it, that's what.

Sure you do.

I don't know all the specifics with respect to un-mortgaged properties, but if there is a mortgage on the property, I know they are required (via the bank) to buy flood insurance now. The flood maps were also all updated and now cover a larger area, at least by me. People are upset, but it's a harsh reality.

You need flood insurance. The Mo river last year flooded from bluff to bluff, destroyed small towns miles from the river. People lost everything. The smell was horrid ,between dead rotting fish and rancid meat. God works wonders, in the summer this year, wild sunflowers bloomed where there were mucky
sand dunes created by the flood.

Because, you know, all hospitals have the power to grant government program eligibility.

They are offered financial aid THROUGH THE HOSPITAL, NOT THE GOV'T, and if they don't qualify, then the hospital ends up writing off the amount. They are NOT automatically put on Medicaid, as was your original assertion. And assertion you have yet to prove.

Well, practically speaking she is mostly correct. Whether or not they get signed up in the hospital or not is really not the point. Rather, the point is that most people that try getting it tend to get it. SOcial workers in the hospital help that to be initiated and whether or not they become eligble INSIDE the hospital or upon discharge several weeks later is therefore irrelevant.

Yes, hospitals write off some things too, but they are also good at enabling more people to get "free" healthcare.

Free in most people's minds means free, no strigns attached, no buts or ifs. Free in a liberal minds means free to you, but others wil have to pay for it.

THe problem with liberals and socialists is that eventually they run out of other people's money. That will not happen in Chicago, because there are still a lot of gullible people around who believe in the system and really think our politicians are doing as well as they can..
