How is this possible? Obamacare has been law for 4 years. these people should have each saved $2500 like the president said.
Actually the the ACA didn’t go into full effect till just this month.
We’ve been paying the taxes, but the actual services don’t start until January 2014.
This makes me so happy to not live in the US. YAY ‘merica nr. 1. :-p
This is why I’m so proud of our social security in Belgium. America is so behind in so many ways…
As a Belgian, I approve your message = D
Now we see why the cost of living in Belgium is 28% higher than the USA.
And why do people love living in America? Seems like its full of obese scooter riding, gun toting people who’s social services are all ass backwards
this from the D bag named BIG BAD BOOTY MACDADDY, real hard hitting stuff there genius and wherever you’re from your shitty country would most likely be undwer some fascist regime if not for the good old US of A..
At least my country doesn’t drop bombs on babies
No you just poor acid in their brains because their birth would be inconvenient to your hipster lifestyle.
Love the heroes (tossers) who bring up that line every time. The US sat back making billions from arms sales before entering the war against multiple already thinly stretched and demoralized powers. Real heroic. Also love how you twats love to take credit for something many others did 60 years ago, as if it makes you a bigger person, no just a bigger twat. Why don’t you go send an sms in a movie theatre, USA…USA!!!
Newsflash—-the United States is a fascist regime!
Just one of the many, many reasons to reconsider moving to(or staying in) the United States. See also: judges abusing their power, police officers getting away with murder, and our own government “collecting data” from not just its own citizens, but people all over the world. Just to name a few.
Yeah, every time I get pissed off at how badly we get raped on retail pricing and taxes up here, I consider how having a mild illness in the U.S. can ruin your life.
You mean after you sneak things across the border through your US PO Box.
I love how a Canadian complained about their $160 bill. I really hope that is sarcasm they are spewing.
Duh! Man, Americans aren’t so subtle with their density.
Oh, I get it – YOU’RE being sarcastic, right? I fucking well hope so.
It’s cheaper to take that money, fly to Europe or Asia and get treated at a good hospital then fly back.
Sorry, non citizens pay through the nose. It’s only the US that illegals are provided free emergency care.
So, doctor’s are supposed to work for free? For Christ’s sake, the one person was complaining when they had an organ transplant! The other idiot went to the ER with an upset stomach. That’s not an ‘EMERGENCY’! Shitty post.
Who said anything about working for free? It’s called a social safety net, if you really need an organ transplant (my guess is that you the patient didn’t suddenly decide they needed a new organ…) then you should be able to get one at a cost that doesn’t bankrupt you. I find that to be a totally reasonable and justified request – why not look into a semi-private system like some countries have? We live in such a system at the moment and my significant other had an emergency procedure performed last year that, had we waited, my SO would have died. Our health insurance taxes take about 400 USD from one of our paychecks each month to cover both of us (it’s sliding based on how much money you make, so someone who makes less would pay less and vice versa) and we’ve been paying into the system for a number of years. After my SO’s emergency visit (which happened following a sudden seizure and unconscious state, with no known condition), several MRIs/Cat scans and surgery soon thereafter, post-surgery recovery in the hospital, and follow-up medication over the past year, we have paid about 300 USD out-of-pocket. Hospital stays cost $13.50 USD per day (we had to spend 14 days in the hospital) and the medication is $13.50 USD for a 2-3 month supply. Follow-up doctor’s visits related to the surgery are covered. Sure, 400 USD per month straight out of the paycheck may seem ridiculous to some, but the same exact thing would have bankrupted us in the U.S. because I’ve seen what peoples’ bills look like who have the same kind of surgery and we’re only in our thirties. We have saved money, but not the kinds of sums you see in some of the bills posted above.
True enough. U.S. consumers are the victims of hospital-insurance collusion. However, the big secret is that even with the strict price monitoring in Canada, single-payer is not sustainable. One-half of Ontario’s budget already goes for healthcare. Even with single payer, most Ontarians pay for private health care–because single payer de-lists more and more treatment options to save money. So, taxes are high, private insurance is still advisable, many effective drugs and treatments available in The U.S. are not available in Canada, and the system is overused, probably because the consumer never gets an invoice for actual costs.
They don’t tell you that Ontario is in worse fiscal shape than California. Yes, the Liberal government blew billions on stupid environmental plans, but heath care is the elephant in the room.
Once the US goes Single-Payer, all those traveling patients will have to stay in their home country to seek medical care. Then the crap will hit the fan.
Come to the US illegally, then medical care if free.

I can relate to this, my son was born 8 weeks premature, they had to airlift him to a hospital with a better NICU…the bill? $37, 126.08 Fortunately, I have damn good health care, but this is beyond ridiculous.
Healthcare in every other country is soooo much better! That’s why all the ebola patients are trying to get to Canada or Europe for treatment.
It cost me a total of $5 to have each of my kids by c-section.
