Obamacare's long-term benefits

Since many low-income folks don’t have health insurance, they use the emergency room as their “primary care physician.” That’s dangerous to the patient and expensive to the taxpayers. As certain provisions of Obamacare come on line, many will be able to see an actual doctor regularly for the first time. But getting them in means a change in habits and a need to boost awareness and education. Photo: Flickr/Mark Coggins
