Not JUST can't pay, but also put themselves there repeatedly because they don't bother to care for themselves in between multiple emergency room visits.

So, yes then. Let them die, right? I wish the people on this board who are making comparisons between people and cars (or fire insurance, or any of the other inane comparisons) would just go out and say it and stop beating around the bush. Let's let them die, right?

Better that than let them CONTINUE to REPEATEDLY impose massive expenses on those who never consented to pay those expenses and have no part in causing them.

If YOU wish to continue to pay for them, nobody is stopping you.

And if they can pay for themselves and choose to do so, that's okay too.

Who shall pay for the disposal of the body, or should we just leave them on the corner?

That's a one-time-per-client expense which avoids a public sanitation issue. Also not a huge expense.
