You aren't kidding ...

While we were in the US, my wife had to have a biopsy ... with insurance
using their facilities ... Non-insured cost $12,000. Insurance discount
$6,000. Out of pocket cost to us $2,000. This with a $360.00 per month
HMO Insurance.

We changed HMOs for various reasons ... under the new HMO, this biopsy
would have cost us out of pocket $20.00 for 2 doctors office visits.
Monthly premium $390.00

And not many people are eligible for it - and it depends on the state.
