Come here in France and appreciate that you can go to the ER for ANYTHING (went 4 times last year for my kids because of bad cough and head injury), and not pay a dime. And they have the same kind of infrastructure to maintain here too, CT scanners, emergency rooms, surgeons and all.
You cannot tell people that the guy is hallucinating hidden costs. It is the health system that is hallucinating these costs. It is a race to the top of who is going to charge the most.
By world standards France is doing fine.
