Something I've never understood. If you have something wrong with you, US films/tv show a demand for a credit card when the hapless individual is rushed into ER.
What happens if somebody is rushed into ER, is treated for something really serious (e.g. heart attack), but it is then found that they do not have medical insurance? Do they then get fleeced by sharks and are forced to sell all their worldly goods or are they simply thrown out on the sidewalk?
OR, if they are treated anyway, why bother with medical insurance?
