Two Americas in Health Care

For homeless people this graph shows some really bad news.  Those living in Texas or Pennsylvania or North Carolina are out of luck.  Those in Ohio, Illinois, California or Arizona will have safety net insurance to avoid years of debt for one encounter with the local emergency room.  These blue colored states from above graph may be able to expand mental health care and alcohol treatment centers with the cost savings from not having to provide emergency room care to those without insurance.  Hospitals in the blue states from the graph will have a reason to expand preventative care and to not discharge sick people to the shelters.
