Thanks Murica! Friend going to die of Congenital heart failure because they can't afford treatment and clearly free healthcare is the worst thing to ever exist!
Best country 10/10! Would get cancer there!
do you have any idea how many people die in Canada, UK, Australia, etc while waiting on the list? If they could afford to pay for treatment to skip ahead on the line, shouldn't they?
you realize that all prices are artificially increased by the hospital/insurance monopoly right?
Just haggle with them until they decrease it.
The problem has never been healthcare, it's always been the insurance companies.
this is COMPLETE horseshit. i don't know if you were misinformed, or if you are making shit up out of whole cloth.
NO ONE in this country is denied treatment due to lack of funds. that's why we have overflowing emergency rooms with people using it as their primary care physician. not even in organ transplant is someone denied due to lack of money. they may be denied for other reasons, such as a belief that they are unlikely to conform to treatment (chronic alcoholic denied liver transplant because he won't stop drinking, for instance), but not solely because of their ability to pay.
You dont fix heart failure at best they give you pills to make your heart beat harder and keep you going awhile.
You might get some restoration is you are young (30s). But it is your body healing itself not anything the doctor does.
Also your dumb ass should have insurance and youll be ok.
I am pretty sure you cannot get on the organ transplant list without having money down anon. Enough to cover the medication for a year which is 10k minimum.
They wont waste an organ on you if you wont be able to get the medication to stop it from rejecting it.
>but not SOLELY because of their ability to pay.
yes, but it is a HUGE factor in getting quality and timely treatment.
Dude, I had a friend die because he couldn't get top tier treatment. Unfortunately, our country does deny certain surgical procedures to people who are not wealthy or do not have influence. Europe does have the best health system in the world because it is completely free for its citizens, but some people still do die waiting for treatment in some european countries even. A bigger problem is doctors that don't give a shit and lie to patients because they are in it for the money.
>Be aussie beta shitposter
>meat american "girl" online
>"she" tells him she will die without surgery
>mean old government wont pay for it
>other assorted drama
>Aussie beta actually believes this bullshit
>Goes full whiteknight
If she is poor then she can get medicaid (and likely other forms of disability welfare if she actually has a congenital defect) that will pay for all her shit. She is just milking the Aussie for attention.
>Dude, I had a friend die because he couldn't get top tier treatment
Fuck off. Now you're demanding everyone have top-tier doctors? Are you really this economically illiterate or do you simply advocate for 5 year waits for doctors?
That and if healthcare is "free", healthcare prices will soar the same way college tuition has soared with easy student loans.
If the government says they will pay any cost to give people the ability to buy your product, will you scrimp and run your business efficiently? And if you do will you pass the savings onto the government? No. You'll raise prices and suck down the easy profits.
Even if the government ran hospitals directly, they will suck down the extra money for side pork projects.
