Jan. 5, 2014
"[ACA statutory language] purports to limit hospitals' charge to uninsured patients in the ER to 'not more than the lowest amounts charged to individuals who have insurance covering such care'. Hospitals which fail to adhere to this policy risk losing their non-profit status.... Hospitals take threats to their non-profit status very seriously. So, since the law was passed in 2010, you might expect that the overcharging of uninsured patients has long since stopped. You would be wrong. Like everything else in ObamaCare, this has malfunctioned."
