    Most of these issues are caused by the privatization of healthcare facilities and the healthcare system in general.
    They are mostly run as a business, with insurance carriers also run as a business.

    Over here we got a half and half system, and it's again the main reason why it does not work.
    Long waiting times, lack of medical personnel, still expensive if not covered by the government healthcare.

    Best system is a fully government run healthcare system, with no private insurance carriers and no options in coverage.
    That way it does not have be run like a business, and it can actually function as a healthcare facility.

    Yeah, lets talk about losing your house to medical bills.

    Long wait times?? Doctor says, "Take her to the hospital now!" CAT scan wait time?? 3 hours. MRI next day, diagnosis immediate, surgery (waiting to wean off some meds) 13 days later.

    Does ANYBODY understand triage??

    Long wait times?? Sure, if you need to get your nose bobbed.

    Thanks for posting those little bits of truth, the words "up to".

    In America, medical bills can hit that can cost "up to" losing your home!!
