So I live in the good ol’ USA and we have expensive health care. I never had to worry about getting sick until I learned it was going to be expensive for me to be ill. Take for example, for a routine check up I was billed $110 even though I was told by my insurance I was fully covered—
NOPE, they only cover certain types of check ups, including specific blood tests. The real kicker is that the original billing total (had I not had insurance) was a little over $1000. One thousand fucking dollars just for a fucking blood test from a check up.
Fact of the day: In the US, it costs twenty bucks just to stick a needle in you
