I wonder how this will affect primary care clinics….. People with fevers may not go to the ER initially. I know the copay is much cheaper if my family starts at their normal Dr. and get a referral from him to the ER. We can’t be the only ones like that.
I use the VA so that is another scary thing where I don’t want to get sick. They will claim that a potential ebola patient has gastroenteritis or URI for their first visit to get them back out the door. One patient will go really wild in that sort of a virii factory.
