My husband works at a Level 1 trauma hospital, a lot of indigent people, but they are never refused care because they don't have insurance or they cannot afford treatment. It's really sad that we have issues like this in this Country. Will it ever change!!
A medical person lecturing you in the ER for not having insurance is a violation of the law.
