Usually when I hear any reference to free healthcare it’s associated with illegal aliens mooching off the welfare of American taxpayers. The free healthcare they get is not from free health clinics but from regular hospitals and urgent care centers.
In some parts of the southwest, small hospitals and urgent care centers have had to close their doors because of the amount of free medical care they were forced to provide to illegals. I have friends in Arizona who have told me of some places in the southern part of the state that no longer have any local emergency facilities, forcing US citizens to travel further to larger cities to get urgent care. The delay in treatment for things like heart attacks, strokes and auto accidents can mean the difference between life and death.
However, in a few areas of our nation, there have been clinics that have been providing free healthcare to US citizens as well as illegals. These clinics have been a godsend for many lower income Americans, but that godsend may not last much longer.
A few of these free clinics have closed their doors due to the fact many of the people they served were able to sign up for Medicaid under the Obamacare expansion. With most of their clientele now having coverage the need for free medical care no longer was necessary.
