Should coronavirus tests and treatment be free? | The Tylt
Health experts are urging hospitals and insurance to waive fees and costs associated with being tested and treated for coronavirus. Many Americans simply can't afford the costs of testing, treatment and quarantine. This means many will forgo going to the doctor until it's really bad—leading to further community infections and the spread of the disease. If we want to stop coronavirus, one of the most important things is to make sure people get the medical care they need. If people avoid treatment because of worries over costs, things will only get worse. However, fiscal conservatives caution that this would be a huge cost and may negatively impact the economy.
