Re: Do the Homeless Get Free Medical Treatment at American Hospitals?
But, what if you didn't give your Social Security? Some people don't have it memorized, so they could just say that they don't know it!
The social worker assigned to the case would find it.
And everyone knows their social security number!
Again, if you have insurance, it would not be worth it to try a scam like this. You'd get better care for pennies on the dollar, without risking prison.
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
