  •  Michael White's experience (1+ / 0-)

    illustrates perfectly why emergency room care does not address the average serious health issue. Poor Mr. White has a chronic condition which, left untreated, will kill him. Yet on a day -to-day basis, he has nowhere to turn. He is not eligible for treatment until his condition becomes so pronounced he has a seizure that lands him in the emergency room. But he cannot access ongoing care for his chronic condition.
    My heart goes out to him, and to all who have to live without healthcare.
