@ricard_dev I'm an Englishman living in America. All the horror stories about American healthcare are... well, not "true" exactly, because the stories are told by people who've lived in the system forever, and have no context for what a working healthcare system even is, so only the cruellest abuses seem unusual to them. The reality is a million little jabs and inconveniences, petty bullying by billionaires, and the occasional atrocity.
Reality is MUCH worse than reported.
@ifixcoinops That's really sad. Everyone, rich or not, should have access to it.
How does it work in the UK?
@ricard_dev There's a flat rate of £8.80 per prescription, which everybody grumbles about. Some hospitals charge a couple of quid an hour for parking, which people are up in arms about. Until I tell them I paid $900 a MONTH for health insurance that didn't actually cover anything.
@ifixcoinops That's crazy 😱
