I dunno about you but when I or hubby – oooh yes, particularly hubby – get sick, we’re predominantly preoccupied with being sick. Coughing, sneezing, healing broken bones, organs, cancer, tooth ache, all the usual stuff. The last thing we want to think about is how much it costs to put us back in a functional state of being. Understandable, isn’t it? And as citizens of a stinky rich European country with a semi-functional system of social insurances (unemployment, pension and, yes, health) we never have to worry about any financial shit. Because our gov’ment thinks the same: We shall get healthy soon so we can enjoy life and/or work to its fullest extent … and best wishes and godspeed to us.
That’s kinda the same way in almost every other country I know of. With the notable exception of the Republic South Africa (and
probably most other African and Asian countries too), and … very sadly the United States of America. 😮
Hey, relax guys, Mexico doesn’t have a social health system neither. But then pharmaceutics and doctors and nurses aren’t as grossly overpriced as in the US.
