Really? And this is baned? This is the worst of the worst! We want to get a free medicine system, and you are banning that?
Unfortunately, the American medical system is in a mess, with many different single payer systems, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). It would be far simpler to have one, government healthcare, as well as far more effective. It is rather sad how poorly America's Healthcare is rated worldwide, especially when it could be so much better.
In Ireland we have multiple health insurers but fairly simple healthcare. Either with the HSE who run all public hospitals and clinics which is used very easily by the majority or you can go private. Like many other european nations the problem we have is understaffing and over crowding in large urban areas, not affordable access to it. For about 10 euro you can get cover for school children for 24 hours during the course of an academic year(at least while I was in school up until 2010/11). I think a similar fee is still in operation for primary school children but not 100% sure.
Nope all paper :) I have heard lovely things about Albania
The biggest problem with Obamacare/ACA in the US is that we tried to have our cake and eat it too. The government mandated coverage through private sector healthcare, but did almost nothing to regulate pricing/cost. People like to complain that the ACA sent costs skyrocketing, but apparently they never looked at their bill prior to ACA. Medical fees have been on the steady rise for 20 years, and even now, with a major boost in enrollment, the cost keeps rising.
Why? No regulation. This is the reason why a hedge fund company can buy a diabetes medication then immediately boost the price 14000%, consumer affordability be damned. But hey, Capitalism, amirite?
No one is asking for a federal government owned/run healthcare, but jeebus, how about a little pricing regulation? I mean, it worked for banks and home loans during the economic crash, right? JP Morgan has made record profits since, and ...... gasp.... they aren't lending to people that can't afford jumbo loans!
It doesn't have to be all-in or none-at-all when it comes to regulation. As Obi Wan said, 'Only a Sith deals in absolutes.' lol
