>Hospitals cannot reject anyone, if someone is in need of medical attention they have to be taken care of, regardless of whether or not they have insurance. However, if you don't have health insurance you have to pay for the cost of the medical work.

I'm going to assume you're not from America, because in America hospitals can't turn people down.
User avatar #37 to #36 - sparkyoneonetwo (04/27/2013) [-]
legally or not still happens all the ******* time. People are turned down for all kinds of important **** for the fact they can't afford it. It's all over the new where I live every day people get turned down but, nothing is ever done about it.

You idiots, no hospital, clinic, or doctor's office can turn away a patient, regardless of ability to pay.

Even illegal aliens.

It just becomes the government's problem, and they pay it with everyone else's money. That's the flaw, not the reluctance to help innocent people.

In reference to post #6. Having a lawyer appointed is a right because a person created another person's grief. By having lawyers appointed, we try to level the playing field between two individuals. Sometimes it is between a person and society. Medical Care is a privilege because ailments are typically natural. There is no harm done by another individual and if there is a lawyer is presented to try and mend the situation.

Also, we are, for the most part, safe in my country
People say capitalism is bad.
That it only makes the rich richer.
Well guess what?
So does everything else.
This just gives a middle class, and a higher standard of living for the lower class.
Life sucks, get over it and stop complaining.
There will always be rich people, and there will always be the poor.
Any country who has tried paying for everything for the people crashes.
Soviet Union.
They lost because they outspent themselves (in essence)
I love my country, but I know that we are a dying country.
Oh well, we had a good run.

"But single-payer healthcare will get rid of compitiion that results from consumers picking the cheapest care!"

RIGHT. BECAUSE WHEN I'M IN THE AMBULANCE DYING, I'M SCREAMING, "TAKE ME TO NATIVIDAD, ITS ******* CHEAPER"

"Healthcare costs are higher than they have ever been before because of how we've soicilized it!"

Actually, medicare is the cheapest healthcare provider IN THE COUNTRY! You know why? CAUSE THEY ARENT TRYING TO TURN A ******* PROFIT.

Dude, based on the average aptitude of the lawyers they appoint, I'm not sure I'd want the state-appointed doctor to get within ten feet of me if I was injured or sick. They'd probably make it worse. Damn.

So the US appoints you free lawyers, but because they ALSO don't give you free doctors, the country is a scumbag?

In America you often here about why Social Healthcare is bad. That it will just allow worthless bums and drug addicts to live off hardworking tax payers even more, and privatized health coverage is far superior to any socialized plan.
Complete ******** .
Here's why.
My wife is pregnant with twins and she wants to move close to her parents in Alaska so she can have family around for the babies... but we can't.
My companies health plan won't cover anything out of state.
That's fine, we'll just buy a private plan.
Nope.
No companies offer private plan maternity (pre-existing or not) in Alaska. There is no state law mandating them too, and pregnancy isn't profitable.
Yup. We're stuck here in ****** Utah for no other reason than our pregnancy just isn't profitable enough.
Healthcare should NEVER be about the bottom line, but it is. Private healthcare isn't about offering the best possible care. Its about maximizing profits. It quite literally puts a dollar value on human health.

I think you need to take a step back, and cool down. ad-hominem attacks are not necessary man. You refer to him as a "selfish prick" even though the only reason he is complaining is because the health insurance providers, that we are now required by law to support, take advantage of EVERYONE they "protect".

because it is a lot more likely that I will do illegal activities and need a lawyer than getting sick/injured and need to see a doctor
