And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crocks is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

This is absolutely ridiculous.

I live in New Zealand. My mum had a heart attack when I was 13, she was in hospital for at least 3 months and our government pays for most of our bills so I think my parents only had to pay around about $500 - 1k. With the option to pay it over a period of time.

Like????? Does the America government even give the slightest fuck about the people that live in their country???? Honestly.

No. They don’t.

And you wonder why so many people go bankrupt over medical expenses.

If I didn’t have insurance my hospital visit to the ER for an asthma attack (and only staying for a few hours) would be $3000 

Gotta love America.

I went to the ER for stomach pain i waited for two hours before i saw anyone and then when the nurse came she tried to start an iv and couldnt get it right stuck me 4 times and then blew the vein in my left arm. then moved on to the right arm after her first attempt she blew that vein in my right arm and said they were going to try my hand. i told her no that i was leaving because they were completely incompetent and the doctor came then and said he couldnt let me leave unless i signed a waver saying that they werent responsible for hurting me. i said no and left i got a 6000 dollar bill from them and called and told them i had photos of the blown veins in my arms that i took there in the ER and if they didnt stop sending me bills i would call a lawyer. the bills and calls stopped. the healthcare industry is the way it is because it makes billions and billions dollars off sick hurt and dying people. its so fucked up. 

how bout the fact that the single treatment that works for my nerve damage isnt covered by my insurance so i have to pay out of pocket and its exorbitantly expensive (>$300 per small tub). The reason its not covered is because my case was reviewed by an OBGYN who found that it wasn’t necessary. An OBGYN. For nerve damage. In a man. With a penis.

the most upsetting fact about this is that we’ve just rolled over and accepted the assfucking that we’re receiving from the healthcare industry. People talk a big game but none of us are actually trying to do anything to correct it when election time rolls around.

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters

they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”

And, of course: "The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."

the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.
