Good doesn't mean cheap or free

Sad news. Healthcare should be accessible for everyone, not a luxury.

It’s good. But you can only access it stress free if you’re rich, can afford good insurance, or qualify for some type of government program that can cover some costs.

Do you know how much it costs to be taken to hospital by ambulance, for instance, in US? :cryga:

I’m so sorry to hear this. :ohno:

My health insurance costs me $400 a month and I don’t even have a family to think about. Good healthcare is very expensive and causes a lot of stress on US families. A simple ambulance ride can cost $10,000 and god forbid you are severely injured and have to be med flighted. That can cost $30,000. A severe illness can cause a family massive debt.

No kidding. If I ever have a medical emergency, I'm calling an uber, not an ambulance. The entire system is broken and ineffective

I had to take one for the first time this year and I was more in pain at the ambulance bill than my broken ankle. :bradley:

Is this a joke? Pls tell me if ur being sarcastic cause I honestly can’t tell. 

If you r for real tho, don’t feel bad. It’s only fair to assume that’d be the case but it’s not. Here in America, healthcare is largely privatized and can be quite expensive.
