'Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains', patented Russou. These chains not only bind us to all sorts of duties - including the duty to feed one's family - but it also binds us to all sort of personal and family ailments. Yes, both the acute and chronic illnesses bring in the tragedies to the person or his/her family but being sudden the former one that embraces accidents and attacks, gives us more distress. It just doesn't give any time to prepare. Illness requires therapy but that does not come cheap - as it is given by the professionals, who have worked hard to reach that stage. Globally speaking, the link between the treatment and payment isn't quite linear, though. In fact, depending on where you live, either you, your insurance company or your government foots the bill. Types of health care: 1. The self pay: This is practically the rule of thumb in poorer countries, where it runs parallel to the poor health facilities. Not being prepared at all for both the cost and the sudden sadness, the acute ones like fractures and the freshly diagnosed cancer add shock to the cost, the chronic ones bring in continuous pain. The unplanned sudden need not only compels one to sell ones property or take a loan with exuberant interest, but it also brings in discord and resentment in the cash dependent family. It's a disaster for the poor, who barely manage an income to eat and educate kids. The only positive thing one can write about this system is that with sheer luck, if one dies of sudden illness at 90 he/she doesn't lose any money in any insurance or tax payments - all his life. 2. The insurance company: Still based on the thinking, 'you got to pay for your own health' that reminds one of the poor countries as aired above, each individual in this system is expected to pay the insurance company for his/her medical care. The joyful company in turn makes the hospital happy. Yes this system takes one's money away but it obviously takes away the sudden and chronic financial stress too. And the capitalists in the US seem to love it. It's not all honky-dory, though. In fact, however much the capitalists may love it as a product of a great civilization, not all the people are intelligent, successful, employed, rich or even composed. There are many people, who are poor, in jail or have addiction problems. These hapless ones may get some help from the charities; if not, they either don't get treatment in the hospitals or get a huge bill after the treatment. Despite being the citizens of a rich country, these troubled beings face the same disaster faced by the poor of the much poorer countries. Yes many take comfort in, 'that's life', but not all see it that way. The denial of treatment despite all the facilities available and the consequence there of, does hit the conscience of upright thinkers. Moreover, when the money makers - the insurance companies - get tied up with the hospitals, money really matters. That slimy thing enters medicine in a big way. When money is to be made, the genes of even ordinary souls are not recessive. Litigation culture had no choice but to emerge. NEXT
