In the last administration, effects took place to remove some of that “see anybody” care. Do you remember the executive order where medical providers could refuse service based on their religious beliefs? That’s a nick in the 1970s-era “emergency room can see anybody” law, which was put into play because back then, you could be turned away if you didn’t speak English or were black, etc – and in some places in the USA it’s been starting to return to that in subtle ways, particularly with the rise of “private hospitals” where there’s no public hospitals nearby – and they CAN turn away patients.

 “don’t be poor” is America’s bumper-sticker that’s all I’m saying.
