Especially those that live in other countries OTHER than the United States. My DH is putting in a request for opinions on how you all feel about your health care that is provided by the government. All he wants is simple – I love it because . . . . or I hate it because . . . or It is o.k. but sometimes it sucks because . . . . etc.
Our neighbor says it is the only way to go for the United States to solve all our insurance, health cost, lawyers/suing problems. My husband disagrees with him saying the Government shouldn’t be running it. Now he would like some actual feedback from people living with it right now to get more of an accurate idea.
I’ve heard of people with long-term health problems in the US running out of money to deal with their problems – at least that doesn’t happen over here. Or does it?
Sure does. When you think your private healthcare covers you for a certain procedure [2nd May] and then they decide, nope, not gonna pay, then the bills start to add up.
If they weren’t going to cover the costs, shouldn’t they have told you BEFORE the procedure?
We kind of knew but were relying on a doctor’s letter making it clear that it had nothing to do with any exclusions I have.
What is clear now is that the consultant has deviated from treating me for one thing and is treating me for something I am excluded from on the policy. It’s an annoying £2000/$4000 nuisance.
