Texas’s Healthcare Implosion

From USA Today:

Texas is the case study for system implosion,” says neurosurgeon Guy Clifton, founder of the Houston-area group Save Our ERs. The problems here, as elsewhere, are many. Small employers are dropping health coverage. Federal and state subsidies don’t make up the difference. Illegal immigrants represent 21% of the county’s public caseload, even though they represent only about 6% of the area’s population.

  1. That would explain why the day after receiving my bill for a recent ER visit, the hospital was already calling wanting to know where my payment was.

    Luckily the visit didn’t cost me an arm and a leg, just part of an arm, but they could have waited a few days before calling.
