Why emergency rooms don’t close the health care gap
KESQ

For decades, the attempts at health care reform have aimed to increase access. The United States is one of the few industrialized nations in the world that does not provide universal health care to its citizens. And repeatedly, those who oppose it have been forced to argue that access isn’t the problem some make it out to be. Why? The emergency department, they say. After all, it is a commonly held belief that no one can be denied care there. So — in essence — everyone can get free health care if they need it. We have a universal system after all.
