Carrie Valiant, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, wrote an article titled "Five Myths About Health Care Access."

Following is an excerpt:

In the national election's continuing controversy over health reform, Governor Mitt Romney commented on the television show "60 Minutes" in early October that there is no need for health reform because "we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care," he said. "Different states have different ways of doing that. Some provide that care through clinics. Some provide the care through emergency rooms," he said.
