What Do People Do For Health Care When They Do Not Have Health Insurance?

Postby Hayym » Wed Jul 02, 2014 3:13 pm

Go to the ER, where by law, they may NOT be refused care, even if illegally here.
Most go without needed care, and many are dying as a result. According to a Harvard study, 45,000 Americans die each year due to a lack of health care insurance.
See the link below to a Reuters news report from Sept. 2009 about a Harvard study that links one death every twelve minutes directly to the lack of health care insurance and quality health care. According to Reuters: The Harvard study, funded by a federal research grant, was published in the online edition of the American Journal of Public Health. It was released by Physicians for a National Health Program, which favors government-backed or "single-payer" health insurance."We're losing more Americans every day because of inaction ... than drunk driving and homicide combined," Dr. David Himmelstein, a co-author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, said in an interview with Reuters.
