  1. Couldnt you just waited and automaticly recieved a card that you just have to show to any doctor in the country to get most treatments without using your wallet? if its coloured blue it might even work the same way in other nearby countries aswell.

  2. There has to be a catch to the public plan. Granted you don't have to go through a laborious medical history but…will you get that money pronto to pay for your medical biz? But it was nice to see this example in foreplay of everything. Thanks John Green. Also, private is perhaps still better in getting the money rather than applying for it. Those are two difference processes with two different outcomes. Nice vid!

  3. If healthcare works for the rest of the developed world, it will work for America.
    Guess how much my history matters for when I get sick? Not a whit. I just tell my doctor or have my files transferred.
    The only thing we have to pay for is an ambulance ride, which can get expensive without insurance. No one dies for lack of money for medicine.

    The only thing I have to pay for is elective surgery, which by definition I don't need, so it's fine. There are /some/ things that slip through the gap, but overall it's pretty good.
    Unless Tony Abbott succeeds in fucking it up, tho his latest attempt failed.

  4. So I'm American and its completely alien to me to be able to walk into a hospital and get service without paying for it, weather it be out of pocket or by insurance. Socialism sounds awesome.

  5. I used my Obamacare card today. I kept the same doctor I always had. I kept the same dentist I always had. I go to the same pharmacy I always have. My medication was $6.00 dollars more than it used to be. My doctor visit was $5.00 dollars more than it used to be. I can live with that especially if I never have to work again.

  6. Hi John,

    The video is really nice. But as someone said in below comments, have you tried it recently? Or with private quote engines?

    I think that would definitely be another unique experience. And I am sure that video will also get popular just like this one.

    Another thing is March 31st is approaching. That is last date for open enrollment. Your video will help lots of people too.

    Cheers . . ..
