Patients leave ER, too broke to pay

News Story:

In the face of high unemployment, and the ongoing recession, a higher number of ER and hospital patients are leaving without treatment against medical advice.  Many express concern about the cost of care, and unwillingness of hospitals to be up front with the cost of care.  AMA discharges consist of about 21% who have no insurance vs. 7% who do.

Commentary:

As most people believe, the cost of healthcare is out of control.  Medical care should not bring ruin to a person’s financial well being.  Those who are uninsured are in effect punished for it by having to pay higher costs than insurance companies pay for similar care  due to network discounts.  This is a dreadful type of abuse against the poor and unemployed.
