    No doubt, and as humorous side I can have chuckle at what you post here, but that wasn't the standard now was it? Boo said that there are those in America denied access. I want to know who.

    Frankly, they can be if it isn't an emergency, and if they aren't and can't pay, we pay one way or another. And believe it or not, many people really don't go because they know they can't pay for it. You should spend some time in a free clinic if you can find one. My very conservative sister did in the Chicago area recently. She was shocked. If you do, I promise it will be an education.

    Not true. No one gets turned away unless it is determined that they are just looking for a warm bed for the night, which happens.

    I know several doctors, and the liability is just too high to turn people away, even if someone comes in with a bad bruise.

    Had a good doctor once who admitted people in Montana for being tired and hungery. He was a good doc. But he could have turned them away. But, we're talking about the law here and no doctor fears. No one has to see anyone that isn't an emeregncy.

    First untruth.

    the federal patient-dumping law entitles you to three things: screening, emergency care and appropriate transfers. A hospital must provide "stabilizing care" for a patient with an emergency medical condition. The hospital must screen for the emergency and provide the care without inquiring about your ability to pay.

    Know your emergency room rights - MSN Money
    and if they aren't and can't pay, we pay one way or another.
    Yep, we do pay through higher insurance rates, and hospital charges. However, that does not curtail their access as you claimed in the earlier post.

    And believe it or not, many people really don't go because they know they can't pay for it.
    This is their choice. The restriction of access in this case is self imposed.

    You should spend some time in a free clinic if you can find one. My very conservative sister did in the Chicago area recently. She was shocked. If you do, I promise it will be an education.
    Yep, I have a daughter that is 22 yrs old. and doesn't have health care, so when she gets sick, she either has to go and sit in the clinic for the entire day just to get some anti biotics, or pay to go to an outpatient care. Neither are good, but she still has access.

    You should visit one, especially in large cities, and you might well have an education.
