    provided in the doc's private office or care provided in the hospital with the charges waived. Care provided under the auspices of a free clinic is legit.

    •  see my comment above. According to my (0+ / 0-)

      husband, there's no problem with treating a patient in his private office for free (I know he's done it quite a lot).

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.

    •  My doctor does it all the time... (0+ / 0-)

      for my husband when he comes along for one of my appointments. I have Medicare, and until today he wasn't insured at all (well, actually Jan 1, but thank you ACA), so when he had anything crop up he had to pay full price to see her.

      She'll see me for my thing, then she asks him if he has any issues, and he'll get a checkup and scripts if necessary, all under just my Medicare copay.

      I think it depends on how human and humane the doctor in question is.
