This has been all over linkedin, I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned earlier.

I am curious how it is going to be implemented but the heathcare system in general.

@DrParasite Yeah, I was surprised it didn't show up here yet!

It's an interesting model - I'm still not clear on why we can't bill for an assessment/refusal and hand out a taxi (or public transit...) voucher...which is cheaper, I presume, given that you don't need an ambulance staffed by two people to transport somebody with coryzal symptoms to an urgent (s)care or their PCP.
