Japan’s amazing healthcare system summed up in photo of hospital bill for father’s heart surgery

With or without my health insurance: I rather imagine that my perspective would be somewhere between dying in the street, and thanking god we don’t have debters prisons per se. Considering how things worked out for my father in the ‘80s, I’m sure that anything involving the words heart and surgery have even worse price tags today.

There’s plenty of good stuff about living in America. The cost of our healthcare isn’t typically on that list.
