I've mentioned previously that I work in Pharmacology. Two major distributors in Utah have simply stopped supplying several ER's with samples because millions of dollars worth of Prescription Meds were handed out to illegals without refills. As usual, cost is triple to American citizens because of the Medical Cost's illegals incurring. Doc's hate them. The Doc's I work with quietly grunt every time I mention the cost's. The Utah Board of Pharmacology have prescribed new plans to help illegals get Meds. through charity and low co-pay's. But big surprise in the works as a result of ACA (Obamacare). They won't be treated at ER's anymore for benign symptoms. ha ha ha, and they are also talking about requesting payment at the time of services. We can't keep paying for this bunch. They are unaccountable for medical services and my Nurse Niece has told me it's even worse in Texas than it was in L.A.
