Just taxes – all hail the NHS – long may she reign!

WTF America?!

Sorry bee, I really have no idea how people can afford the US health system. Notice I left out the word ‘care’? It really angers me that people can be treated with such disregard.

Like $150-250 out of pocket (not including medication obv). I have crappy insurance, and it’s not because I work at Walmart or something. I have a masters degree and 10 years experience in my field and a good job. Just the US sucks in terms of health care.

mrsB052315 :  $45. But it’s around $250 cash price. So next year when I switch plans it’s going to cost a lot until I reach my deductible. It can get ridiculous.

I had an ER bill for almost $500 and I didn’t even get a room I got a chair. I’m like spendy chair. I did get to see the doctor for five minutes. Then sent to specialist to make an appointment later. But I’m glad to have access at least. I’ve had no insurance and it’s scary.

Around $260 for an urgent care center, with one strep test as the only exam.   We have a (*beep*) insurance plan that isn’t great, and each have a 2,000 deductible.  That’s 4K before we meet it for the family, per year.

Wow, that seems like a lot. Were there lots of tests run or anything? I had to go for a UTI some months back. I hadn’t met my deductible but it came out to around $90.

$0, provided I don’t go more than twice per fiscal year.

$50 co-pay

My insurance is pretty fantastic so I don’t have a deductible, however, looking at the amount the insurance company is billed is horrifying.

Mine is $20 at Kaiser. If I choose the phone appointment option instead of seeing the doctor, it’s free.

$30 copay and that’s it.


these responses strike me as pretty meaningless without more info: like how much do people with high deductible plans vs low pay monthly, how much has each person paid out per year, at what rate are they taxed to pay for insurance, etc. the money for health care always comes from somewhere; it’s never actually “free.” The question is just when and how (and who) pays for it.
