The greatest third world healthcare in the world. bored.gif That version is not healthcare, it's a tax if you can't afford insurance privately.
No different than taxing people who are denied a bank account.

you can't implement a new system overnight. it's a process that can take decades.

the big problem is most Americans don't want a socialised healthcare system cause they think its bad, when its the actual opposite. Brainwashed since the 50's.

i really don't know why people think free health care for everyone is bad.
denying someone access to medical aid in any form whatsoever is one of the most evil things one can do... almost like raping little children or something.

in all fairness he couldn't really implement a real free healthcare like the rest of our countries have, cause its impossible to do there. Those healthcare companies have too much power. The Majority of Americans are terrified of a real socialised healthcare system and will fight tooth and nail to stop it happening (that's the real worry) so Obama was stuck trying to do something, cause its obvious Americans are screwed over, and the result was the utter crap Obamacare. I don't think it was his fault.

Well, it's not exactly free, we're paying for it through taxes, but I'd rather do that than bail out bankers and go to wars in far away countries.

Ironically they only call it "socialized" health care in the US when it's known as universal health care everywhere it's implemented.

Quote:The term ["socialized medicine"] was popularized by the public relations firm Whitaker and Baxter working for the American Medical Association in 1947 to disparage President Truman's proposal for a national health care system. It was a label, at the dawn of the cold war, meant to suggest that anybody advocating universal access to health care must be a communist. And the phrase has retained its political power for six decades.

Same here, but I don't think it's as much as 50% buying health insurance privately. You can go to a private doctor and get 60% back (due to our communism, lol) from the cost of it and the meds will be equally subsidized. The pharmacies are also required by law to offer the cheapest generic med that does the same thing so the docs can't really peddle expensive drugs for big pharma.

There's also an annual limit to what you have to pay for meds which is a bit over 500 euros, after that meds are heavily subsidized. My dad who is on several (expensive) meds pays about 1.50 euros a month for his stuff after he hit that limit.

Sounds similar here. Are meds really expensive in the us?

i go to the doctors that bulk bill, meaning they swipe your Medicare card and you pay nothing. There used to be lots of bulk billing GPs but now most you pay for, but Medicare will subsidise the visit. So you might pay $40 to see the gp, but you get back prob about 80% of that. Not Exactly sure, but if you see the same doctor again tge next week for same prob or test results he will bulk bill the visit so you only get hit with the cost once.
