Who Pays for Care She Didn’t Want?

[Star Tribune, August 30, 2009] Kerra Cameron first blacked out from panic attacks eight years ago. She would slip into a foggy state for about 15 minutes before returning to normal. She's been tested for everything from epilepsy to multiple sclerosis, but the only thing doctors have determined is that she has low blood pressure. The attacks were never a big problem until May, when Cameron, 34, passed out in a Coon Rapids Target store and soon found herself in the back of an ambulance. Over the loud protests of Cameron and her fiancé, who insisted she didn't need medical treatment, Cameron was rushed to nearby Mercy Hospital.
