    This should be in the surgery section. Mods can we sort this?

    They don't usually expect you to pay the $15k-20k right out of pocket at checkout, insurance covers a good deal of it, and even with good coverage I'd still have to pay around $8,000 for an open heart surgery; if he doesn't have a great policy it could easily be a lot more.

    damn your country sucks balls.

    whats the point of paying insurance if they only fork out half the money for you?

    unless ur only paying enuff to cover for a grazed knee needing a couple of plasters

    no, not even close, his plan was to basically give poor people free insurance on the government...which in theory, is nice, but you've still got the problem of hospitals and insurers fighting for profit, which is never a good thing.

    socialise the fuck out of it imo.

    There is no point really because every insurance tries to trick on you, no matter what. It´s a lot better in Europe but still muggery of epic proportions.

    Insurance must be non-profit.
