As an ER physician, the concept of universal health care
is appealing, but is it feasible? One of the several reasons why health care
costs so much is due to scores of people, especially at the university/teaching hospital level, lacking coverage. Obviously there will continue to be a dilemma regarding the treatment of illegal immigrants, but will universal coverage bring down health care
costs? I don't know.Please give me your comments on this topic.
Remember, it does not matter if a person has insurance or not, or is a legal citizen or not, I have to supply the same level of care to that individual regardless since I'm an emergency physician and required to do so by law.
