And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T

how can anaesthetic cost that much??

how is this legal??

WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.

You have to pay for the ambulance!?

This is JUST the ambulance. With insurance.

Yep. I am really lucky (for another two years at least) in that I am on my mom’s super-awesome insurance and the ambulance, with emergency hospital stay for severe allergic reaction to the point of not being able to breathe, was about….$500.

My mom, however, has awesome insurance.

And in two years, I won’t be going to the doctor for shit.

Oh, I broke my leg?

Let me go online, figure out how to splint it, and ta-da!

I’ll be fine in six months.

There was a flash among the trees and a pink think came barreling out. “Is someone sad?” A girlish voice asked frantically as a woman with long brown hair and hazel eyes whipped her head around, looking for her target.

Megan cooed. “Aww, is that your wife? You two look cute together.” She commented, a large smile on her face.

"Yes this is my wife Susan." He said and blushed, "hello young one. Hello Lady Light." Serena bowed to her gracefully.

Megan curtsied again. “Nice to meet you, Susan.

iloveinflationrp asked: "Do not fret dear it is funny! And it's been so long since I've laughed like this" *neumo pats her on the head* "such fun indeed" neumo was really happy for the first time in a long time.

Megan gave a small smile, glancing up at the masked man with a nod.  ”Alright.” She answered, chewing on a candy bar. It was good. It reminded her of her childhood, she thought. She paused after finishing the candy bar, glancing down at the candy bag and back towards the cloaked and masked skinny figure of Neumo. “Aren’t you hungry?” She asked. 

Megan smiled as Neumo pulled a blanket over her. “Mmm….” She mumbled a little, snuggling into the bed as she pulled the blanket tighter, giving a soft snore. She started to dream, alternating between work and indulgence. 

Neumo decided to leave Megan for awhile-he had to fix his mask and cloak up a bit, looking in a mirror he exclaimed “oh my, my mask!” The corner was cracked a little “this will take awhile to repair” neumo thought “thank heavens she’s asleep”

Megan was still asleep, a few hours later, exhausted. Her chest rose and fell softly with calm sleep.

Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”

Stacey: “Why not?”

Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”

The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.

I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.

They hit the nail on the head every single time.

This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy!
It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.

Thankful for this.

Some of these are real good, gonna have to try them.

And for #7, make sure its like Febreeze or something. Then the room will smell pretty

These kids get 5 dollars from the tooth fairy? I only ever got from 25 cents to a dollar.

To be honest I was expecting these to get really dark and be like “cut out their tongue so they won’t scream at night” or something so I’m glad this didn’t turn out like I thought it would

Shit still works.

because it’s pure nintenadium

I love how you step on a disc it snaps in half
But if you step on a Nintendo cartridge it won’t even budge
Hell you can drop a TV on an N64 and it’d probably work even better than before

pure nintendium

Nintendium is the strongest element known to mankind

Right up there with Nokium
