    What I see is that there is a tremendous amount of greed on the part of the insurance companies"

    US healthcare system is designed by very smart people. It’s hard to understand by anyone other than the designer.It also has holograms incorporated into its structure

    I had a Dr that literally had a stop watch and mid stream stopped and stated the visit was over. Focused problem only. No questions. When I said he could spend more time with me as I as a ppo vs hmo, he just got up n left. He said he had a firm to run. He told me make another appointment. I paid over $350.000 and never went back.

    Being a physician should be a government job.

    Greed. And the fact that the US has a for profit medical industry and not a health care system

    Is it possible that Saudi Arabia oil business owns American healthcare and are running as a Muslim system? Obamacare is more than insuring more people our whole system of how illnesses are treated has been completely changed. And the war on antibiotics and opioids in the healthcare are part of the horror of causing death. And this push to blame patients for illnesses and not treating diseases.

    Why because doctors and healthcare places like hospitals can charge whatever they want and then the people can sue them for malpractice for just about anything

    Hello, I think I have the right ***********. I read an article about your conversation with ***************, was that you? I wanted to share some of my findings with you about racism, discrimination and its origins. In particular the current situation around the globe. People all think these incidents are one off occurrences by individuals but the truth is they have a large foundation and I keep reminding people about some history with Roman Catholics in Africa way back from Caesar in Egypt to Mussolini gassing Africans in the 1920 before ww2 and even the ebola outbreak in West African diamond mines and so many other events. Maltese and Italians moving into Tripoli and Libya pushing Africans out onto boats but Malta and Italy closing their borders to refugees…. You also have to realize and consider that the Roman Catholic empire has deeply established roots throughout history and humanity especially considering they have wiped out opposition through genocide, ethnic cleansing, famine and wars. Not only do they cause famines but they then ask everyone else for money to supposedly save them so people who want to help actually help the instigator not the victim. Dr Faucci ties into all of this with his 1980 aids projects. Medicating Africans making them sick while appealing for funds claiming to help them. Italian. Biggest mobs and industries and that's how they do it, and St Johns medical military Maltese and Jewish establishment. They kill people off to take assets and estates while rounding up people who want to help their victims claiming money and funds telling them they are on it. This is the deception and everyone is locked down and isolated and divided and can't do anything about it. They also own the communications, and media, police, courts etc so they can quickly identify and deal with any opposition. This is what happened on 9/11. It was a diversion, it was a way to clear out any defence who wasn't with them and focus it against other opposition. They evicted the defence force and sent them to die and those that didnt were stopped from coming back by medical with claims of PTSD and suicides. Medical military roman catholic. It's bigger than you think.

    Its easy to blame the insurance companies… my had surgery for a cyst and was in the ER for a total of 8 hours, bill was $66,000. I had to pay $45 to park and in the parking lot I drove past the doctors floor that was filled with 100k+ dollar cars including Ferrari's expensive MB models, lots of high end Teslas…. What other feild do you regularly see Ferrari's in the parking lots and Patek's or Rolexes on the wrists? Insurance + Drug companies make $$$ but doctors scam us as well. My gf doctor called all her friends including her husband for "consulting fees" that all added up to 66,000 for a 1.5 hour minimally invasive surgery and 3 hours outpatient "care" with nurses that barely spoke English and gave incorrect advice. The medical community calls you patients because because they don't want you seeing yourself as customers that are getting ripped off.

    I almost committed sucide when I found out I had herpes virus, I was going through a health blog when I say how a woman testified of how Dr Ozuka cured her and I decided to contact him, to my greatest shock he actually cured me and now i test negative

    Whenever I need to see a doctor for a major issue (eye/tooth surgery), I fly to Taiwan to get it, because the cost of airplane ticket + fee to the doctor + Annal fee to keep my citizenship in Taiwan + annual fee of universal health care in Taiwan is less than what I would be paying my doctor in America.

    How can the U.S. be a wealthy country when there are a lot of people who are sleeping rough and have no health coverage? 05:47

    I’m a conservative but I am ALL FOR single payer health care. Insurance companies and politicians are out of control. It’s ridiculous Americans get FLEECED every time we need health care. It’s no surprise medical tourism is on the rise. It’s way time for serious change.
