Under existing law no hospital can turn away anyone who shows up in their ER needing care based on their ability to pay. This includes illegal immigrants. So illegal Maria shows up at the ER in labor and delivers a 4# baby who then spends 6 months in the NICU racking up $300,000 in medical costs. The hospital currently has to write this off as charitable care. It wouldn’t take very many cases like this to push the hospital over the edge of this Obamacare rule. Yet these illegals do not have insurance and presumably are not eligible for Obamacare.
