Then we can tell them that they don't have to provide any services until a patient shows proof of insurance or pays up front.

That's not morally acceptable to me. Medicade covers you if you're at poverty level. It didn't cover you if you have a job that doesn't provide insurance. You had to pay out the wazoo for personal coverage. The new health care law is better than the past system. It's not perfect though. Myself? I like Germany's healthcare system.

My costliest injury was a dislocated patella during baseball practice in high school. Ambulance trips and MRI's are costly. Even with insurance.
