I just read an article on MSN about medical tourism and it is just embarrassing that someone who needs, for example, a heart valve transplant can get it for almost 20 times less somewhere else. Yeah, we're a first world country and there is some peace of mind that comes with that but $160,000 vs $9,000? Where the hell is all that money going? It's absolutely shameful and is a big reason why we need a total health care overhaul in this country. I've wrote a post not too long ago about my stance on public healthcare and this article just reinforces that opinion.
