Las Vegas Aftermath On Medical Bills Proves Why We Need Medicare-For-AllQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
"The hundreds wounded In Las Vegas, are being tended to in a network of Nevada hospitals. But because this is a country that has never had guaranteed universal health care, they will soon be besieged by a second tragedy: enormous medical bills. This morning, Go FundMe was set up to request charity for those injured in the massacre. Nearly half of what GoFundMe raises is related to medical bills. This is serious stuff, we’re talking about life-saving surgeries, or medicine! But, less than 10% of these campaigns actually raise enough money to solve the problem. Compare: UK’s healthcare system allowed for the proper care and attention that victims needed, free of charge from them, or other citizens. America’s healthcare system is making its victims start fundraisers which will very likely not be successful, making the possibility of bankruptcy via medical bills extremely likely."
