    re: health insurance card on ones person
    mine says 'take me to the closest freakin' hospital as fast as possible' :D
    if I'm in an accident or injured/ill, and require ambulance transport, paying for it will be the least of my concerns
    the financials will sort themselves out, they can't deny you aid...
    can't hospitals run your name through insurance databases and get your coverage?

    That's what I wonder. I would hope so for how much that costs. My dental can run through it without issues why is health insurance so friggin tough to do?

    There is not necessarily a need to have your insurance card. It is usually presented as a courtesy to your healthcare provider, there are several ways to get your insurance information without a card. Additionally many states have mandatory transport laws which require transport to the closest facility in emergency situations. In instances that are not life threatening, and you are conscious, the common practice is to consult the patient on destination. Finally, treatment in emergent circumstances is ruled in part by EMTALA, more information on that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Medical_Treatment_and_Active_Labor_Act
