I too am curious about when and how this people became recipients of Obama Care. I may be wrong but it only became federally mandated on my job as of
I have never seen a person in my brief time (8+ years) in my present field, refused hospitalization or treatment because they didn't have insurance.
In fact, I have seen just the opposite. I have seen people with what they thought was very good insurance, that they paid large sums of money, over a
long period of time, sent home because their insurance companies demanded it and threatened refusal of payment if patient was kept in hospital, one
additional day, where people without insurance would stay for "months" until it was indisputably clear, that all measures to resolve the condition
had been exhausted.
I have even heard of cases were patients have stayed in hospital for years (awaiting the outcome of an active law suit by another hospital) without
being forcibly released by the hospital when the patient refused to go, even when the patient was no longer receiving hospital level care.
I have seen patients without insurance or income receive, chemo therapy, surgeries, physical therapy, all the same services available and provided to
those with insurance. I am not going to say that I agree with how many used the system before; that is another thread, but it is more than
disingenuous to say that these people would have been without treatment without Obama Care.
