This story is actually making the case for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). If these "indigent people" had health care coverage, the city wouldn't have to pay 23 million to UF Health. Yet Florida's Governor and Republican controlled legislature are still blocking its efforts from being fully implemented. Twenty-three Million is not the only figure it is costing taxpayers when you talk about indigent people without health care coverage. That figure is much much higher. Every ER in the city is plagued with "indigent people" with no where else to go when they are sick and can't afford a doctor.
