Clinics help to relieve number of uninsured Georgians found in ERs

Politicians have pushed various solutions for the problems, as the state's medical safety net quietly tries to deal with a patient deluge.

But all too often, the employer doesn't provide health insurance, or if it's offered, the worker can't afford it.
