While the United States has largely considered itself as the greatest country in the world for the last few decades, the statistics tell us that there are areas where things can definitely be improved.

In military might and defence spending the U.S. is undisputedly number one. But in other areas, more important aspects of human wellbeing such as education, life expectancy, happiness, gender and income equality and healthcare, there are more mixed results.

The U.S. healthcare system in particular is a continuing source of bafflement for many, who are accustomed to a degree of protection against the double disaster of poor health followed by financial ruin.

While American hospitals and medical facilities are world class, they are also incredibly expensive and available only to those able to afford them. We at Bored Panda have compiled a list of examples that highlight the inadequacies of the current healthcare system, while polarised politicians continue to argue about their vision for its future. Scroll down to check them out below, and stay healthy over there in America, y’all.

Because their constitution is outdated. The second amendment made sense when America didn't had an army to defend their country against foreign aggressors, in this case, the British. In some states it was mandatory to have gun, because there was no army...now it's a nonsense, in my opinion.

In Poland - you can go to jail if you see someone having a medical problem (generally speaking), and you don't help by not calling "911" (112 or 999). Calling for an ambulance on no grounds = will cost, but nothing dramatic. Rarely punishable, afaik.

My doctor informed me that there is now a law in Virginia that if you get opiates and benzodiazepines you now need a script for Narcan Nasal Spray. Which is only to be used if you OD & you are dead & someone is giving you CPR & an ambulance is on the way. So I went to the pharmacy and insurance wouldn't pay for it and it was $140. My awful doctor who has been my Primary Care doctor (I Have Crohn's disease and endometriosis and PTSD) and he said I should ask for the Narcan for Christmas. Umm I am on disability my husband works 6 days a week with only 10 days off ALL YEAR. 10. Where I am going to get that money. We didn't get a bonus. So I appealed. My insurance sent me my denial and it said and I quote "Narcan is not considered Life saving Medication." Umm it is literally a life saving med the number 1 used by EMTs. And then they said "You have not tried any other formularies for this medication." I told them you have to be dead to use it! They are going to kill me at 42 & no one cares

Great line: "Everything about healthcare in the US makes me want to cry." Especially the parts that are made up, I guess. There's no "thousands of dollars" fee for someone who has an ambulance called on them. Transport can indeed cost $800-1500 depending on where you are. If EMS arrives, they don't necessarily take you to the ER; the fee is smaller. There's a difference between Uber and an ambulance, btw. If you code on the way to the hospital and you're in an ambulance, they'll do CPR on you and you'll likely survive (those things are basically mobile ICUs). If you're in an Uber, you're dead. No doubt your family will take great pleasure in the money you saved.

And then there's the situation where you get injured at your college (I got a tiny jeweler saw blade lodged in my thumb) and the security staff are not legally allowed to help and they must call an ambulance. At the time, I didn't know that you could have been charged for an ambulance ride here in Canada, but it was non-life threatening. Thing is, I could have walked across the school parking lot into the hospital myself. But I had to call the security (I can get expelled if I don't report an injury) and they had to call paramedics because they can't touch it and so, I had to pay a bill.

15 Years in EMS and I've never seen someone with a bracelet saying don't call 911... besides, if they have an history of seizures, they would probably just sign off. And, why would you want some average joe in the street to make the decision to call 911 or not? Just because someone calls 911 doesn't mean they "have" to go to the hospital.

Nothing is “paid for by the government”. That is failed thinking; and that is the problem. It is paid for by the people; by the taxes they pay; and distributed correctly. But, we all need to understand that all of those benefits and “free” healthcare is paid for by taxes paid by the PEOPLE. If you remember this; and you have benefits in your country; you may be able to make correct choices at the polls.

It's actually over 610x the cost of an Uber, but this includes the price of a medic in the ambulance with you and the supplies they need to save your life. It's awful that hospitals don't have enough money to not charge so much, but the doctors, nurses, and ambulance drivers need money too. It'll probably be better once robots take over the world.

Here in Finland every citizen have health insurace because it is paid from the taxes. And because of that insurance also the poor people can afford healthcare. It is funny to see when some Finnish people complain that a prescription drug is 'too expensive' if it costs over 30 euros per month when in USA the exactly same drug is usually 3 to 10 times more expensive.
