it does, but we didnt qualify for it. well, we used to be on medicaid, and when it came time to renew, our worker said to go ahead and make appts, because looking over our info we still will qualify. BUT.....about 6 months later we got bills in the mail from dr's saying our medicaid isnt active. then 6 months after that we finally got a medicaid letter saying we didnt qualify.
very slow process and we need something quick.

With no insurance be prepared to pay in cash up front. If you cannot do that, go to any hospital emergency room. By law, they must treat emergencies.

Someday, this country might join the rest of the developed world and offer national Health care.

Our current system is similar to communist China. If you can't pay, you're screwed.

thanks, vision67

we did find a place on Pikes Peak, an Immediate Care Clinic. We paid $20, including a strep test - where her reg. dr. was going to charge $85, plus extra for a strep test. the wait was about 10 minutes total, and her reg doctor we would have been waiting for an hour. guess it was meant to be!

Or perhaps you'd be expected to pay for services rendered just like you would for any other item you purchase off a shelf or any other service provided? It astounds me to see the arrogance some have in expecting the medical profession to simply eat the cost of caring for those who don't have the means to pay for it.

How many auto mechanics do you know who do pro bono work? Are regulated to do it by law? Yet people need cars to get to work and manage to pay for it.

I'm not impressed.

I'll also note that the rest of the "developed world" is going broke at an even faster rate than the United States.

Emergy Care - there are several locations in Colorado Springs. You can pay with Visa / MasterCard
Also, call Memorial Hospital.

Yes, in fact I visited there yesterday (just checking it out in case I have a blood pressure emergency). It is located just north of Research on North Union, and is not too far from Memorial North.
