Abstract

This poster exemplifies the burden that is put on the health care system specifically emergency rooms when Americans are unable to afford health insurance. It highlights the importance of health insurance and how critical it is to be able to attain health insurance for all. The lack of health insurance is being seen in these emergency departments creating longer wait times and poorer quality care because that is the only place people without insurance can get care, thus creating a burden on the health care system.
