Florida leads again!

I am so excited to announce that Florida is still right at the top……..at the top of the list of states that have the most people without health insurance.Actually, we’re number 3, behind Texas and New Mexico. Here’s the link to the Washington Post article regarding the new U.S Census report: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/27/AR2010072705835.html?wpisrc=nl_cuzheadWhat the article does not mention, is how the cost of all the uninsured folks is passed to the state and the taxpayers, mainly through care that uninsured folks seek at public hospitals and emergency rooms.Also, the article doesn’t address the problem that we, at Liggio Law see, and fight every day: denied claims by health insurers and HMOS for folks that DO have health insurance coverage, wrongful cancellations of coverage, and failure to pay and underpayment of medical and hospital charges.Another dubious we’re number one(three), for Florida!
