    5 years now. We only have around 3% uninsured yet we have one of the highest rates of people who use the ER as their primary healthcare stop.

    The data also show that among those who have purchased the mandatory coverage there is a low incidence if copay's for prescription and doctors visits. Implying that they cant afford to use that insurance,  I have private insurance in the state and the wait time for appointments is long.  We have about a 6 month wait for an appointment with an optometrist, etc.

    I would say that the diarist observation and comments are spot on.
