ObamaCare Will Increase ER Visits
A new Harvard University study suggests many more people will be making emergency room visits under ObamaCare, the opposite of the law’s intent. Published in The Journal of Science, the study looks at a 40% increase in emergency room visits, for common symptoms, when Oregon expanded their Medicaid program to cover uninsured people. It’s called the Affordable Care Act, but with expected higher costs, this is hardly the case. Supporters say the only way ObamaCare would save money is by getting previously uninsured people to visit their doctor instead of costly emergency room visits. With so many hospitals already strapped for cash, this signature law won’t do anything positive to reverse this reality in our health care system. Opposing views are welcomed.
