Poor Americans in South Less Likely to Get Medical Care: Study
Date:3/28/2013

er of Physicians for a National Health Program.

"For instance, the least expensive private insurance mandated by 'Obamacare' will have deductibles of up to $2,000, meaning that a policyholder who gets sick will need to pay $2,000 out of pocket before their insurance even kicks in," she said.

"A particularly ominous development is that the Obama administration is now allowing states to force even the poorest families to pay out of pocket before they can get medical care -- either by tacking co-payment onto Medicaid or, as in Arkansas, forcing the poor into skimpy private insurance plans. Hence, we can expect medically dangerous delays in care to continue," Woolhandler said.
