    Under provisions of obamacare, if you get discharged from the hospital and have a complication, you won't get seen in an emergency room.

    More than 2,200 hospitals face penalties under ObamaCare rules | Fox News

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.
    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates -- which refers to patients who return within a month -- by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.
    Doctors are concerned the penalty is unfair, since sometimes they have to accept patients more than once in a brief period of time but could be penalized for doing so -- even for accepting seniors who are sick.
    "Among patients with heart failure, hospitals that have higher readmission rates actually have lower mortality rates," said Sunil Kripalani, MD, a professor with Vanderbilt University Medical Center who studies hospital readmissions. "So, which would we rather have -- a hospital readmission or a death?"

    obama's answer, he'd rather have a death.

    The hospitals deserve to be punished.

    Maybe you should do some independent research on reasons for high readmission rates.

    Don't care.

    obama intends to force people who need emergency care to die in the streets, right at the ER door. It's part of his rationing scheme.

    Costs to get in the ER are so high now, i can imagine what they'll be when this takes effect....does anyone think the hospitals are going to not pass these costs on to the patient? Most people wouldn't be able to even go to the ER anymore! Except the ones that don't have to pay anyway, because we do it for them!

    Not for illegals, they always get treated for free.

    This provision doesn't address costs. It punishes hospitals that readmit patients to an Emergency Room within 30 days. Hospitals just won't admit patients who have been discharged within 30 days prior. They will send them home to die.
