Most large health institutions simply take it on the chin when you don’t pay. They realize that if they stopped seeing their patients, then their patients will simply go to their competitors. While there is neither a law, nor an ethical rule, requiring that they provide care to people who don’t pay, a recent article showed that there was quite an uproar when it was revealed that Alina was denying medical care to people who owed at least $1500. The attorney general got involved, and ultimately they reversed their policy.
