Three hospitals taking care of people wounded in the Colorado theater shooting say they will limit or completely wipe out medical bills for the victims.
Some victims, many of them young, are uninsured and face mounting hospital bills.
Children's Hospital Colorado announced Wednesday it would use donations to cover the medical expenses of the uninsured. For those who do have insurance, the hospital says it will waive all co-pays for shooting victims it is treating.
HealthOne, which owns the Medical Center of Aurora and Swedish Medical Center, also says it will limit or eliminate charges based on the individual circumstances of the patients.
There's no word yet on what the other two hospitals plan to do.
