Midland Memorial Hospital has been providing health care for the migrants after the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) opened an intake facility for unaccompanied minors in March in Midland, 德州. 但是到目前为止, the hospital hasn’t received any payment from the federal government in return, according to Tasa Richardson, the public relations manager for the hospital.
“I can confirm that Midland Memorial Hospital has provided healthcare services to 40 individuals from the migrant facility,” Richardson told Fox News. “This care has totaled hospital charges of $ 206,287. Claims have been submitted via Point Comfort per federal official direction. 迄今为止, no claims have been processed.”
