I am an American, and as such I've grown up always hearing from the media/politicians/private insurance companies that Universal Healthcare is a bad thing. So I am curious to hear from those covered by it, if you get sick with the common cold what do you do? Do you have to wait for a doctor? What does it cost to fill a prescription? Also if someone needs something major done like a surgery or organ transplant what happens? I've always been told you may end up waiting for surgery until its to late. Just curious about how it works, I know you pay higher taxes for the system but here if we don't have health coverage through work or somewhere else then you pay a heck of a lot more for health care than you would pay in higher taxes.
