Healthcare


How most Scandinavians feel about the American healthcare system. :XD:

In Scandinavia we pay for healthcare though our taxes, which means we all pay for each other, and nobody thinks twice about going to the doctor because we’ve already paid for it. We also have private care for those rich people who don't want to wait in line.

But before you declare the American system “OMG!!! EVUL!!!”, remember that we Scandinavians also pay the highest taxes in the world.

We up her like it the way it is, but you Americans will have to decide for yourself.

Hahahahaha.......... To be honest, I really like the Scandinavian health care system better than the American one.

Yeah it's pretty messed up to be honest, the US really needs a single-payer system to take care of it's people. But eh, greedy people always end up in power.

I'd like to say that you're actually misrepresenting the American healthcare system. We don't have a lot of the preventative medicine that European countries have. You get regular checkups if you have healthcare and want it. Hospitals are the major stumbling block. Basically, there's a law saying that hospitals can't turn away patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Because of this, any losses get charged to patients who can. This is far more screwed up than a simple payment for treatment methodology. It's great on a humanitarian level, but it leaves the people with insurance out to dry. If I trusted a government with running good cradle to grave healthcare, I would actually prefer it to our current system, but America is a great example of what happens when the government gets its his hands in too deep on spending. The American government is unable to spend responsibly and is overly sidetracked by special interests.

My family moved to America to get away from the British NHS. It's much better here, and emergency care is always free if you can't pay. Most docs and hospitals will work out reduced rates and payment plans if your insurance doesn't cover, and in the worst case, medical bankruptcies are not the drain bankruptcies in most of the world are.

It's true the US system is a convoluted mess.

It's also true that the employer provided insurance model was created by the labor unions during WWII, to make them a non-taxed benefit.

So, it was socialists who created our screwed up system. ;)
