    The ER is not free, and it's not health care.

    I notice a lot of other people have pointed out that they do in fact bill you for ER services, but I will also point out that the emergency room only treats a very limited range of issues.  If you have high blood pressure you can't go to the ER and get pills every month.  If you have cancer you can't go to the ER and get chemo.  All they do in the ER is patch your immediate wounds, they don't give you healthcare.
