You're assuming they have a regular doctor.

I know too many poor people who go to a clinic and get whomever happens to be there that day.

Also, for the uninsured doctor visits start around $150 in my area. It's more for a specialist like an endocrinologist who specializes in treating diabetes. Assuming said person can get an appointment in the first place.

Otherwise - it's wait until you're dying and go to the ER. Or at least hope someone gets you to an ER when you get goofy/unconscious from blood sugar problems.
