WHAT GOOD IS HEALTH INSURANCE IF YOU AREN’T COVERED IN AN EMERGENCY?
If there is one type of medical condition that absolutely should be covered by any form of insurance — it is a medical emergency. Emergencies are always unexpected and potentially catastrophic to American working families. The healthcare reform bill proposed in the US Senate will not protect emergency services as an essential benefit — hence allowing insurance companies to deny people the right to affordable care when they are the most vulnerable.
When a person faces an emergency, they WILL seek help regardless of their ability to pay, and ER physicians and facilities WILL treat them no matter what.
If Congress allows this benefit to be stripped by insurance companies, it WILL turn medical emergencies into financial emergencies for millions of families, medical providers, our state governments, and for all of us as taxpayers.
Every single person is a potential emergency patient. Please tell your legislators to do the right thing and protect our emergency benefits!
