More worthwhile reporting on the topic increased costs and one of many broken systems. Take a look:

The KSHB article is a throwaway, as it didn't list one comparative price example!

My step cousin's barber said he had to wait 5 years for a routine checkup in Canada, so our system is still the best in the world for sure.

Here's a pro tip: If you have a surgery or something and the hospital bills you some ridiculous amount, say you can only pay $x per month and they will adjust your bill accordingly if you ask. Never pay the sticker price they bill you. By paying what you propose monthly, you then avoid a credit score hit.
