Health insurance - who pays for the uninsured


I'm doing a project for school about health insurance in the States, preferably California, but others will do.

I'm interested in care for the uninsured. Who pays for this? I assume the state does, but how does it actually work? You go to hospital, and are uninsured - they take care of you - you leave, say you have no $$$ - the state pays? You have some debt with the state or not?

Any explanation, insight or links to stuff on how it works greatly appreciated.
