One of the hospitals here, also an owner of lots of clinics in the area, says business has fallen off so steeply they are cutting 400 to 450 within 45 days.
Most the people here do not have health insurance, and we that do are running into higher copays every year. I think the price of healthcare is causing lots of families to cease seeking care. Priced out of the market, left to live suffer & die. Welcome to the third world. Maybe Bill Gates will start trying to keep our kids from dying in the first year, launch a vaccination program here, our rate is the highest of any industrialized nation.
