Healthcare Changes Could Impact Emergency Services

Illinois state leaders say the changes to healthcare laws under the Affordable Care Act could have a big impact on emergency services, especially in rural areas. Officials hope that if people go to the doctor more often, they can catch health problems earlier, meaning fewer people will have to call 911 in a pinch.

Illinois state leaders say the changes to healthcare laws under the Affordable Care Act could have a big impact on emergency services, especially in rural areas.

In the past, less populated areas had limited access to first responders.

Officials say the new law could help ease that. They hope that if people go to the doctor more often, they can catch health problems earlier, meaning fewer people will have to call 911 in a pinch.

One downside for residents in rural areas is that healthcare premiums cost more per month than if that person lived in a bigger city.
