Just to clarify your statement about who pays for the free loaders in the ER, most of that free care is passed on to patient charges which wind up being paid by insurance companies who pass it along to premium payers, or to the few who pay billed charges. Of the guvment programs Medicare pays best, but doesn't pay actual costs so private payers have to pick up some of the cost shift. Medicaid is a huge loss for the healthcare industry and cost shifting to private insurance is the primary reason for escalating premiums. Free care is a total cost shift to privates. Illegal aliens are free care. Copperline, believe what you want, but there are the facts.
