Also, ERs are the worst way to provide non-emergency care, both in terms of cost and quality. We charge literally ten times what a primary care doctor would, we can’t provide much in the way of continuity or follow-up care, and we do zero preventative care.
And we’re not “free”; we’re obligated to treat regardless of ability to pay, but we also send out bills regardless of ability to pay. We can’t force people to pay those bills, but we do send them to collections and trash patients’ credit when they don’t.
So if people in that district had been getting Medicaid (and family doctors who accept Medicaid, ‘nother kettle of fish there), their care would’ve cost way less than $52 million and they’d be healthier besides.
"You can always just go to the ER" is a fucking joke.
Not to mention preventative care is generally a lot cheaper than critical care. You get an infection, if you have insurance and can go to the doctor early, some antibiotics will usually solve the problem. You wait until you’re severely ill, you end up in the hospital, costing a ton more money.
Medicare for All dammit.
YES GODDAMMIT MEDICARE FOR ALL.
