In this country it is based upon your gross income. The most anyone pays for with a family or single is about US $6500 a year. With this you get
dental also. There is a 30% deductible at time of service that you must pay. There is no "I'll pay you later Doctor", just send me the bill.
Doesn't work that way here. People save for medical expenses. There are price caps on everything that a doctor or hospital can charge and the city
govt. sends out a confirmation billing to the patient to confirm the facts. This has cut down fraud a lot. A hospital visit with an xray, blood test,
urine test, that was all done in a matter of a few hours with a follow up with the doctor cost me out of pocket less than US$50.00. That's right,
the US medical insurance is for profit and I mean "big" profit. Anyway, this country's got it together, not perfect, but just. By the way if you
do get really sick, you got to have money up front to pay for expected cost. Or, yes, the graveyard can be your next visit. Cold, yes, indeed, but if
you don't save for your own medical security, tough. The govt. has met you half way. I'm not sure if there is actual free medical like in America. I
do believe if someone is totally mentally disable or even blind, then the city will pick up the cost of the medical bills. If that patient has cancer
or needs a heart transplant or something big, not sure how that works.
