Really if someone would streamline healthcare in the US and not allow hospitals to charge $10 for a pain pill and $400 for a brace I can get at Walmart for $20 we would see 100% again.
Then we can tell them that they don't have to provide any services until a patient shows proof of insurance or pays up front.
That's not morally acceptable to me. Medicade covers you if you're at poverty level. It didn't cover you if you have a job that doesn't provide insurance. You had to pay out the wazoo for personal coverage. The new health care law is better than the past system. It's not perfect though. Myself? I like Germany's healthcare system.
My costliest injury was a dislocated patella during baseball practice in high school. Ambulance trips and MRI's are costly. Even with insurance.
