    The hospitals, by Federal law, have to take care of sick patients, whether or not they have any coverage or money.  If the family calls 911 and the loved one shows up at the hospital ER, they will have to take care of them.  Sooner or later the state will have to do what is necessary to keep their hospitals open.  It just doesn't save any money.
