You don't have healthcare cost under the NHS? I'm Dutch and I have lots of healthcare costs. A bit over €3000 in tax, €1100 in insurance, €885 deductible, €300 dental, €300 physiotherapy, €50 in uncovered medicine.

I would love a website that broke these costs down for me in a logical way so I could streamline my personal finances.

That sounds heavenly, frankly.

Here's my monthly $2,144.69 insurance bill for a family of four. https://imgur.com/ldA372o

It doesn't cover dental at all, and I pay up to $4,000 annually in co-pays on top of those monthly premiums. Counting dental, my family of four pays roughly $32k/year for medical expenses.


The NHS costs are limited to £9 per prescription (England only, waivable on low income). Hospital visits are free; people complain about having to pay for parking, because they lack all perspective on how bad it might be.

The tax is not hypothecated but is about £3k each. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42950587

(Dental and optical you may have to pay up to a few hundred £ for)
