South Florida doctors offer options for uninsured

Miami Herald, March 19, 2009
In response to the struggling economy, some South Florida doctors are lowering their prices for their uninsured patients or giving them other help if they can't afford to pay. Tony Prieto, president of the Broward County Medical Association, said in a statement: "Patients need to understand that doctors have bills to pay, staff salaries, and office expenses, but we are compassionate, reasonable people who want to help our patients."
