I'm currently watching a British documentary where they're visiting various A&E departments around the world. At the moment they're in New York. Seven people have been rushed to hospital after a guy walked into a cafe and started shooting randomly (a normal Saturday night in New York according to one of the doctors. America sounds like a lovely place.). One particular chap has been x-rayed, operated on etc etc. Without a national health service, what would happen if he came round and declared he didn't have any insurance?
