Well, they went into a Cuban pharmacy and asked about, I can only assume Albuterol (asthma inhaler, if that's how you spell it). It costs the lady who needed it $120 per inhaler. It was 3.80 pesos in Cuba which is approximately 5 or so cents in US dollars. So, that was just amazing. Then they go to Havana Hospital which is clean and spacious and they are seen right away (which seemed to happen in Canada, France and England, too) at the most, it seemed people waited an hour. The least, whisked right in.
So, yeah, going by that model. It's a fuckton better than our system. Clean hospitals, no dumping patients onto various state agencies because they can't pay their bill, no denial of care because of some medical condition from ten years ago.
I *seriously* considered moving. Seriously. Not to Cuba though, because you have to swap housing with people. I don't like that. :)
