Ok, after seeing a lot of people saying, "LOL JUST GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, THEY CANT REFUSE YOU NO MATTER WHAT" That is an incredible display of a lack how the ER works in general. First of all their job is to stabilize you so you do not die in the clinic. This is great for things such as car accidents, gunshot wounds, alcohol poisoning, etc. They will NOT give chemotherapy, knee replacement, kidney transplant, treatment for colds and stuff since they will refer you to a specialist who requires money. Second of all THEY DO BILL YOU, its just that when you don't they either have a choice to sue you to get the money or they rack up the prices for other procedures in other parts of the hospital and therefore fuck over actual paying patients. Third of all, unless you are seriously about to die, you WILL wait in a line for your turn to be treated. If you complain of chest pains and call 911, the ambulance will come, give you oxygen and transport you to the emergency room. There you will wait on a gurney for your turn unless you start to have a heart attack or something.

FOURTH OF ALL, OP SHOULD OF CLEARLY KNOWN THIS WOULD HAVE STARTED A SHITSTORM AND SHOULDNT HAVE POSTED THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Ahhh come on now. It's good to be able to have a good rant about stuff from time to time. I seriously didn't think it would cause as much as it did though.

I have been to the emergency room numerous times and have seen people come in with gashes in their leg bleeding with multiple bruises on their face and a broken arm and they had to wait around 50 minutes to get treated while people who had a cold or something went in before them.
