I think it is great that we have a law that requires all hospitals to help people who need emergency care regardless of how much money they have to pay. However, I wonder whether the poor patients are going to get the same quality of care that a wealthy person will get.
There are so many tests that hospitals can run to see what is wrong with a patient, but they all cost money and they may not be conclusive. So when people have no insurance and can't pay their bills are they going to receive fewer tests? And does this mean that doctors are not doing everything possible to treat the poor patients?
