That's right. We can walk into any clinic, most are open until 7 pm and we can go to ER for anything, anytime of day. Break a bone and get x rayed or
whatever else they need to use to diagnose the problem. If they don't have the equipment you get taken to a hospital that does. I was transported to
another hospital to get an MRI. There's doctors on call at the emergency rooms all the time. There's parents going in there for their child's ear
infections, you name it. A cut finger. Animal bites.
If we need to see a specialist like an ophthalmologist for the eyes, dermatologists or psychiatrists, it's free if it's by doctor referral.
I honestly think we have the best medical care.
There's very few people I know who aren't on MSP. It's automatic to just hand over your card to give them the number and if you don't have the
card on you, it's ok, you can call in later and give the number. They never say no card no service. Never.
We can call 911 and get paramedics to come in a very short time. We pay $50 for an ambulance ride if you feel you want to go to hospital.
Suppose you lied and said you lost your card, you will get billed of course. However you can get on MSP and just back pay to cover it.
