The most expensive non-US package out there.

If you think cheaper is better when it comes to health care, that’s entirely your issue. I happen to think maintaining quality matters, and you’re never going to get to one of the lower cost schemes without telling the doctors and nurses to fuck off and accept a 50% cut in pay. Unsurprisingly, that would lead to a large number of people leaving the profession, and a drop in quality.

But I’m sure you’ll be quite happy with the surgeon who graduated with C’s in Chemistry and Calculus from a state school.

Try Japan. Half a pricey and just as good as the Swiss.

And they use 20% copays to hold down costs. Good luck trying to sell a program that requires Uncle Ralph to cough up 10K in cash in order to get a stent put in.
