Don't let the numbers fool you. While the latest statistics show the number of uninsured dropped in 2007, safety net providers aren't celebrating.

Abstract

While the number of the uninsured dropped in 2007, safety net providers say that doesn't tell the whole story. "Many of these folks have such poorly constructed insurance policies ... that most of their healthcare expenses end up as bad debt anyway," says John Bluford, left, of Truman Medical Centers.
