My father´s cancer care cost nothing, as he lives smaller town in rural area he was given a choice to stay in University hospital´s apartments free of charge about 160km from his home or having a taxi to hospital and back to his home in those days he got treatment. My old father chose taxi which cost him 5 euros to one direction. His treatment took 3 months.

Swedish hospital in Uppsala sends their risk pregnancy cases to Finland, deliveries takes place in Åbo ( Turku) universital hospital.

My kid has Diabetes type 1, he has free insulin and free insulin pump, his pump is medtronic 670g ( full full retail price in US is approximately $8,000). He also has glucose sensoring system free of charge also all other stuff he needs to when taking care of his diabetes all free.

Nikki Haley has no idea how good finnish system is. Maybe she is among those ignorants who do not even know where Finland is.

So where is Finland??? WHAT is Finland??? So where are you guys getting the money to pay for the hospitals, rental houses, doctors and nurses and drugs...Perhaps you somehow conned America into paying for them...

They think that if we elect “the socialists” then the government will decide if you get healthcare or not. They think if they get old and get sick, the government will be judge and jury on if they’re sick enough to get treatment. They don’t understand that everyone gets health care under this system no matter what. They honestly, truly believe that private health is better for them due to a 3rd party deciding what you need. I am not joking.

From one of the posts in the article...

We pay the most, get the least in return. I dont want some company whose main purpose is PROFIT to be in charge of ANYTHING. Let alone my health choices.

You can vote out a politician. Not an insurance company.

Interestingly enough, here on oz our public system is better than the private, all the new doctors are trained through the public system and the specialists are happy to remain stagnated and charging stupid money to those who want to pay more for less. It's an upside down world alright.

We have Medicare in Australia and illegals or even Immigrants do not have access to it. It's part of being a citizen. Sometimes it's slow for specialised surgeries but other than that the system works. ***you don't give Medicare to illegals is what iam saying.

Berney Sanders needs to stop using fake invoices hospitals and doctors use to charge the insurance companies in order to get the max amount from insurance companies.

Just had two kids not to long ago in one of the most expensive parts of the country. The most I had to pay was just under $2,000 for my youngest and that's only because the pregnancy went over Jannurary and so two deducable years. Would have been half that if we planned it better.

The anesthesiaologest, who was out of network, sent us a bill for 8,000 alone; the insurance company sent me a check for $500 and said it was the max they pay their in network doctors. I sent the $500 to the anesthesiologist and I didn't hear back from him afterward. I found out then and, reaffirmed it later many times, that the "medical bill" is just the start of negotiations not the end of the transaction ... if your paying the whole bill your paying way way to much.

Now to be clear I am currently in favor of a single payer system (preferably run by the states and not the Feds) because ever since the ACA it has been a nightmare to deal logistacly with providers and insurers.

Up to 53% marginal tax rate plus a 24% Vat Tax (13% on foods) VAT (Value added Tax) similar to a state sales tax on crap you buy.

Want to fill up your gas tank on your car, it is about $8.50 per gallon in Finland.

The Personal Income Tax Rate in Finland stands at 51.60 percent. Personal Income Tax Rate in Finland averaged 52.96 percent from 1995 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 62.20 percent in 1995 and a record low of 49.00 percent in 2010.

Just think about paying 52% income tax plus a 24% sales tax and $8.50 a gallon for gasoline!

Of course healthcare has to be next to nothing, nobody has money left in their pockets!

We have a lot of hidden taxes here in the USA. I remember when taxes were higher, Cops weren't out there drumming up income from drivers, they were policing the town. Anything with the government costs money now, and it seems that every utility bill has lots of add ons on them, they tax everything these days here in America. Our tax here is compound, I buy something and the people making it pay taxes. But now, buying things made in China, we do not tax their workers so now our national debt is rising. This means eventually we will need to pay fifty percent just to balance our national debt, plus still pay health insurance and deductibles. You have to look at the whole picture, not just a snapshot of a few things.
