    Yes, government insurance.

    I have a plan. If I get very sick, I'll die, and thereby escape the illness.

    Re: Do you currently have a healthcare plan?

    Will someone please explain what the whole fuss about the health plan is ?

    I'm happy to pay taxes and get an excellent medical coverage not just for myself and for my family but also for those in need who would have never otherwise afforded a private health insurance.

    If I didn't have my 100% coverage when I was pregnant (unemployed at the time) and given birth in one of the best hospitals, I would have died during delivery.

    I'm on my parent's plan for as long as I'm in school, and I can't imagine that whatever job I end up in won't have a health plan

    Proceed. But leave my money alone, thank you very much.

    But you won't get "excellent medical coverage" you'll get mediocre, uncaring "care" overseen by bureaucrats, who you will have given access to every single aspect of your physical existence.

    well, that certainly isn't the case in France. The least of my worries when I get ill is money even when I'm unemployed.

    edit: just as an example. A few years ago I was diagnosed with having Hashimoto's hypothyroid. I had all the necessary tests done, including a scan of the thyroid gland, the right doze of substitute hormone was prescribed and since then I've been having blood tests and scans done regularly every six months.

    When I explained the symptoms to a friend in the US, he thought he might have the same problem as well. So I told him to go and get checked. His reply was "do you know how much a blood test costs" ?

    My daughter has a thyroid problem as well. Like in France, in the UK, she gets any treatment needed without needing to go off in search of funds. In addition because it is a lifelong condition she does not need to pay prescription charges not only for this but for anything else for the rest of her life.
