One of the things I love about nsane forums is we have such a diverse membership from all over the world.  We all share a common interest in tech, but we have such different backgrounds and experiences.  I am an American living in the U.S.  Right now, healthcare is once again a major issue in the news and I'd like a little perspective.  Who here lives in a country with universal healthcare coverage?

In the Czech Republic there are enough private health insurance companies and one state
We have a duty to have a health insurance company if we do not choose to go to the state but we can choose even the state every one of the banks is paying a different share of the doctor for the treatment
For some pompous as a wheelchair, we have to fill in with our own foam

I am at a state insurance company

 

And the quality of the medical bake is different from the city to the better baking city is Prague Brno Ostrava, but it also belongs to the doctor or hospital

Specialized workplaces are in large cities

I think the majority of the countries have the system mention above by jasper, since money is the major factor unless you have a high tax rate to cover for free health service.

In Iran there is Social security organization covering pretty much every citizen, other than that there is health insurance for Veterans and Armed forces in all military branches, also lots of insurances from private sector some of which only focus on special types of insurance.

Enjoy (the ancient wisdom):

بني آدم اعضاي يك پيكرند
كه در آفرينش ز يك گوهرند
چو عضوي به درد آورد روزگار
دگر عضوها را نماند قرار
تو كز محنت ديگران بي غمي
نشايد كه نامت نهند آدمي
:mellow:
...Children of Adam are limbs of a same body
Whose creation is from a single core.
Should the times inflict a pain upon an organ,
No other part then is resting anymore.
If you are in repose from the others' misery,
To name you a human one shall deplore.
:mellow:

Germany is a very law-ridden country but between all these laws, there is a universal healthcare.

Offtopic: Isn't the doctors there are now moving to work to Norway due to high salary offered in Norway?

Now your country is open for doctors coming from other country like Asia.  Is that true?

Germany was always open for people from other countries, especially other EU countries. There is a public press announcement from 2015 from the BÄK (Bundesärztekammer) you can check out here. Other EU countries exported most of the foreigners, followed by Asia. It's not like all doctors go to Norway. :lol:

 

People going to Norway don't do that for salary alone, in Germany there is higher workload and salary not as good as in for example Norway and on top of that, Norway often is less stressful and offers better work conditions in general. that goes for most medical and care professions.
