Joe Smith is a 27- year-old Caucasian male who works two part-time jobs for two different construction companies. Joe has been having dizzy spells off and on for the past two months. While driving to work one day, he loses consciousness and is involved in a motor vehicle accident. Joe is admitted to your not-for-profit hospital with a broken leg and multiple lacerations.
Answer the following questions:
1. Does Mr. Smith fit the typical profile for an uninsured person in the United States? Justify your answer.
2. How will your hospital most likely be reimbursed for Mr. Smith’s medical care?
