Our hospital is in danger of closing. It's the only hospital in the county. It has lost money for the last several years. If it closes, it will be 20 miles to one. I don't know if the ACA will have an effect or not. So many people here can't afford insurance, wages are extremely low, and in Missouri the Medicaid cutoff is $334 a month for a family of four. So most poor people go to the ER and can't pay. And they aren't immigrants. The recovery never reached here.
