Asked this within another thread and only got a few responses, so I thought I'd start a new thread to make it the focus.
So I am curious, and since the subject a hot topic on these forums as of late, I have no reason not to ask it here.
In the countries that have socialized state run healthcare, how much do you pay for things like prescriptions? Lab work? Hospital stays? ER visits?
The average US for these (generally) with health insurance:
Prescriptions: $10 - $30 (Generic to Name Brand, if covered) or up to THOUSANDS of dollars (if not covered)
Lab Work (blood tests, x-rays, etc.) $30 - $50
Hospital stays: 10% - 50%
ER visits: $50 - $100 + 20% - 50% of the cost of procedures
What's it like in other countries where healthcare is socialized?
