    often use more than 6 ER visits in a year. Some years are worse than others, depending on weather and allergens, but it's very easy to use up 6 ER visits in 6 months when you aren't on any maintenance meds because you don't have insurance and can't afford doctors visits (Those of us on medically needy for example.. an ER visit qualifies us to actually have medicaid for a month, otherwise it's out of pocket all the way). So specifically this will hurt those of us in the 'medicaid gap' in Florida, with chronic conditions that qualify us for the 'medically needy' plan.
