Brilliant. I’m sure the folks over at the Kaiser hospitals just love it when politicians tell the poor to get their care at ERs. Hell, maybe I’ll try it for my next pap smear. Why mess with that silly copay anyway?

And after you can’t pay that ER bill your credit gets wrecked, so when you apply for student loans or for better jobs you get rejected. Brilliant advice there dude.

For example, visiting an ER is not going to get preventative foot care for diabetics done.

But avoidable amputations = profit, so many players in what passes for the US health care system will do nothing to address this.

I wonder when was the last time Mr. Bryant had to go to the ER for non emergency care because he had no other option?

So, should a dialysis patient go to the same ER three times a week or split his treatments over multiple hospitals?

re: #6 alinuxguru

So, should a dialysis patient go to the same ER three times a week or split his treatments over multiple hospitals?

What they do is go to ER when they start getting really sick to get dialysis. Because they don’t have insurance, they wait until it is an emergency, then show up at the ER. They aren’t getting it done three times a week. It’s costing our county hospital millions just in dialysis patients.

I’m tellin’ yuh, moochers on Medicaid go to the ER for tattoos and piercings!
