According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in 2007, 55% of US emergency care goes uncompensated. I assume you mean for the uninsured?And since ERs only have to stabilize, not cure, whatever they do is late in the day and not enough. That's a different issue, but I suppose it could be used in the argument for preventative care diminishing that 55% number. I have seen figures that say preventative care, in some cases, costs more than dealing with an issue when it shows itself. My main point, however, was that simply getting the uninsured off ER care wasn't going to lower our premiums because they would consume health care in other areas. It was strictly a cost analysis view that I was taking. Grape
