Just more proof that the U.S. needs universal health care. I've known some people who were 5150'd (involuntary psychiatric hold in CA) who were responsible for their medical bills for what was basically something they had no say in. Many of these people weren't even allowed to transport themselves to the hospital because police officers wouldn't allow it, then they were on the hook for a hefty ambulance bill after they were released.
