    I have never, ever, not once been asked by any doctor or hospital how much money is in my bank account. Ever.

    There are alot of things i'd love to steal from US as you know and some things in which i believe it is superior to Europe in imo.
    But both bring something new to the world
    Damn it, we agree to much which doesn't facilitate fierce debate.

    I like the French which is a bit odd for the states.

    no, Switzerland is the only country in Europe that is 100% private and universal, but also by far the most expensive.. only second to the US world wide.

    Except we can afford it. Swiss salaries are also among the highest in Europe too. Very few people get government help to pay for their health insurance, even though the number has risen these past few years. The cost also varies widely depending on what part of the country you're in. For some reason Swiss Germans manage to keep their costs way down, whereas the French and Italian parts do a lousy job of it.

    I failed to correctly state the intent of my gold standard comment, that was my fault. U.K. healthcare does have his problems, I should have been more clear and stated further that in general economic status the U.K. is the gold standard.

    I got no problems with the Swiss system and yea you can afford it. As long as it is universal health care and covers everyone then it is all good in my book. Although personally if I was Swiss then I would be asking lots of questions on why your system is so expensive and try to cut down that cost but that is me

    Yep. That would be it in a nutshell.
