Doctor bills - are they too excessive?!
In Switzerland, I pay 387chf for private healthcare, I am under 40 and in usually good health. Franchise I pay first is 1,500 chf. It works well here. We have to pay 10% of each ailment when hospitalised, enployers pay by law for accident insurance. Everyone has to have health insurance by law. 💉Taking blood can cost upto $150 for a full blood works. I think we are lucky. I never felt confident with the UK system. We do not pay national health tax as a result and tax is very low. There is a short 2 year benefit system in Suisse and it's not cool to be unemployed. You just can't afford to have such a way of life as I found prevalent in the UK. Fortunately there are jobs.
I have lived in the US too, I never quite understood the system and it was far more expensive for healthcare or so it seemed for a full family. However, I found everything affordable from houses and cars were soo much cheaper than Suisse. The size of the American economy makes it difficult to please all. Reverting to a socialised medical system like the UK is just not possible.
I feel medicine and it's experts deserve their pay especially in the UK where they are paid less.
