Wow ... have you been one of many who might be thinking low income people are going to be sorry that they just can't go the hospital anymore once the ACA goes into place? You just might be right!
The attached link is to an article talking about a CA law implemented in 2006 that had "no-cost" services for those below poverty income levels, guarantees of rates no higher than those on medicaid for other low income levels and so on! Read all about it.
Also, unlike the ACA, it applies to all hospitals! Thinking there might be some sorry people!! Your thoughts?
