Ouch.

"Mr Pharmaceutical" can bite me.

"Mrs insurance" can bite me too.

My next post will be when to break up with your private insurance company.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.

modern US health system is not primarily for the sick but are businesses that provide a money stream for the wealthy.
Monopolies intuit are competing for investors by going after ever higher returns.

True, unless you have a catastrophic injury or illness.

Sure, it's pricey, but you also get good service in the US. Plus, healthcare system is expensive literally everywhere in the west.

not true in the last 3 places I lived.

expensive is a relative term and the US is near the top

"In 2016, the United States spent nearly twice as much as 10 high-income countries on medical care and performed less well on many population health outcomes. Contrary to some explanations for high spending, social spending and health care utilization in the United States did not differ substantially from other high-income nations. Prices of labor and goods, including pharmaceuticals and devices, and administrative costs appeared to be the main drivers of the differences in spending."
