I pay my dentist $400 a year, which pays for general maintenance, fillings, etc. I buy a pair of glasses every 3 years or so at about $300 a shot.
The rest, including $120,000 heart transplants etc, is covered under Medicare, via Uncle Sugar and the 2% of my income I paid over 40 years. Everyone over 65 has this deal. Everyone who's got no money has the same deal under Medicaid. Veterans have the same deal under the VA system.
And no, no Brit that I've ever talked to in my life has heard of any of these systems. All they've heard is about black folks dying in the gutter outside the hospital door because they had no money. Because that's the narrative they've made up.
We'll, enough of the "... and nothing about old bikes" part of the IKBA motto....
