Look at the bright side, you won't need health insurance when you're dead.

I am very sorry to hear about your ordeal, but the truth is that this what is happening to many Massachusetts state citizens with their mandatory health care People are finding out that they have to buy into insurance but then they can not afford the out of pocket expenses.
This is the same crap that will happen when the national health care hit the nations struggling workers, the companies will switch to crappy insurances with the lowest coverage and higher deductibles to pass on to the employees making then unable to afford to use their mandatory health care.
Insurance companies get their cut and your get to be afraid of going to the doctor.

Wow. I have to admit I feel really sorry for you guys.
I'm a single Canadian and for $57 a month (yes we still pay EVERY month), I get free doctors visits (prescriptions and doctor's notes extra but I get reimbursed 80% through my insurance provider), and free hospital visits (I've never been there) when I need it. I think I still need to pay for an ambulance but I can get that reimbursed too..
Just imagine how your country would be if EVERYONE paid their 60.00 a month (family's are more of course, here it's about 100). Then EVERYBODY could have access to some form of health care and the suffering could be controlled better. (it's not perfect of course).
