Just thinking. Dis the health system in the UK, but there is much good being done as well.
Where I live, out of pocket change to the shrink runs about $200 per hour. Health insurance usually covers 20 sessions, but the doc or therapist must come from a list they provide, and it can be hit or miss. The best doctors, as these things go, prefer to run their own business, and so we ( I ) pay. An added advantage is your privacy is legally protected.

I personally agree and am grateful for our NHS. Yes, things are not perfect and sometimes appointment waiting times are longer than I would prefer, but when I get there I see a very skilled Consultant for free and then get all my medications at a low price :

( i.e one of mine costs about £150 per month and I only pay less than £7 - even less with an annual pre-payment certificate ).

All this means I get thousands of pounds worth of drugs per year for one payment of about £95.

the G.P I have is an absolute gem and she is 'free' too.

We are indeed lucky.

In either case, there are competent and caring people for all of us. Counting blessings despite the ticking metre.
