MIAMI (CN) – A medical center in Puerto Rico and two of its patients claim in court that the Trump administration is underfunding the health care programs in the U.S. territory, placing nearly 1 million people at risk of losing their health care coverage.
In a federal complaint filed Monday in Miami, the plaintiffs claim Puerto Rico’s residents are burdened with a “second rate health care system” that is about to collapse.
