  1. and Sir Frederick Banting, who discovered insulin, sold the patent for 1$ so it could be easily mass-produced and prices kept low. In my opinion, medicine that keeps you from not dying should be free, no cost to insurance or the person.

  2. Wow its free in the netherlands. Maybe you guys need to change the way the usa works.

    Edit: so many reactions!

    Just some more info, every one in the netherlands has a healthcare insurance that costs about 100 euros a month. In this insurance is “basic” so insuline would be in there, things like docters/hospital/ambulance/mental healthcare etc is all included in that, most medication as wel.
    (Fun thing is i inject vitamin b12 thats covert but i have to pay 1 euro for the needels per quarter)

    You can take additional insurance for like dentist, or physical therapy.

    So lets say you are me you pay your 100 euros. We also have a 385 out of pocked a year, thats total.
    If you dont earn much money like me the gov will help you pay a part of your insurance, this is income depended. I only work 20 hours so im in the lowest bracket and i get 95 euros a month to help pay my insurance.

  3. Foreigner here- can any Americans please weigh in on why some people DONT want universal health care?

    Nobody likes an increase in taxes, I get that, but surely the tax increase will cost the average American less than the absurd medical bills in the tens of thousands..? Right???

    The rest of the world just really don’t understand?

  4. And yet I still meet Americans who are absolutely fine about that. Just as long as the stuggling mother and kids on welfare don’t get health care access.

    ​

    Twice I have had someone say “I’d rather pay $10K a year in insurance, than $4K in taxes to ensure someone on welfare doesn’t get access – because they haven’t worked for it”.

    ​

    That level of meanness and ignorance is what you are going against when trying to convert Americans against single-payer healthcare.

  5. That was my America for fifteen years then I returned to England where the vast majority of healthcare is free at the point of delivery. It took me a while not to be hunting through my purse for my insurance card and expecting to fill in forms every time I went to see a family practitioner doc or a specialist. It’s good to be back. Right now I’m settled in to using an insulin pump, cgm and associated supplies – all free of charge.

  6. Yep. Can confirm. My oldest kid is 18. He uses the pen style Novolog and Lantus. It’s crazy expensive! That alone comes to around 1,000 a month here. Add in pen needles, alcohol wipes, Glucagon for emergencies, blood sugar test strips, ketone strips, etc.

    It’s a whole entire pain in his ass. You get used to it, but it is struggle and expense for life. Plan your time, money, and meals around it, or suffer.

    It put so many things into perspective. Few things are as expensive or as worrisome to my family.

  7. People making minimum wage can not afford rent, let alone insulin. One week of insulin is more than an entire week of wages before any deductions at minimum wage. Imagine living in an educated, scientifically, medically, and technologically advanced society where the base minimum wage will not afford you a damn thing. Oh wait.
