Today, I found out a test I need to see if I need surgery on my gallbladder costs more than my pay check, even with insurance. FML

I love how we can assume you’re from the US because it’s the only place where healthcare would be so atrocious. Sorry OP, that’s terrible.

This is why I'm glad I live in the UK. Healthcare shouldn't bankrupt you.

Most personal bankruptcies in America are due to medical bills. Join the club! Maybe Lee Greenwood could add a verse about that.

America really needs universal healthcare. Nobody should go bankrupt from accessing essential medical services. What a fucking travesty. I'm thankful I'm Canadian.

Do the test. Give them what you can each month, even if it’s only $5. They can’t really take you to collections as long as you’re paying something.

True, but amazing that we have access to modern medical care at all. I wonder what they would do if this happened 300 years ago...
