Emergency rooms cannot now. It's against the law.

Private hospitals have always been able to do this. By law, any hospital that gets any of its funding from the government - city, county, state or federal - cannot turn away anyone coming to the emergency room for care simply because they cannot pay.

Yes, they should kick them out. But that would not solve your health care problems.
