Either you were in the most unique one-off ER in the USA or your guestimate is way way way off. The ACTUAL numbers show that far and away most emergency room visitors have insurance. Flip your numbers because REALITY is that the uninsured account for less then 20% of ER visits. The largest group represented in ERs? Those with Medicaid (or qualify for it and are too dumb to know).
