StanceGrounded SJPeace The horrors of Socialized Medicine A first hand experience by Kevin Bozeat We need Universal Healthcare! RETWEET THIS The Horrors of Socialized Medicine A first hand experience A few days ago my stomach began to hurt Thinking it would pass I went home to try and rest for the night A bit later I vomited I thought that was the end of it But for the rest of the night I kept vomiting almost every 30-40 minutes Even after my stomach was completely empty I kept vomiting Soon it was nothing but stomach fluid and bile I tried to drink water to stay hydrated but I kept throwing it up no matter how hard I tried to keep it This could have easily cost me hundreds or even thousands in the US without insurance But here in Taiwan I was able to receive speedy quality care comparable to what I would have gotten in a US hospital for relatively small amount of money Given this experience I no longer have a reason to fear or hesitate getting care in Taiwan should I ever need it America it's time to stop making excuses 316 PM Feb 25 2019 Twitter for Android 19K Retweets 36K Likes The Horrors of Socialized Medicine A first hand experience A few days ago my stomach began to hurt Thinking it would pass I went home to try and rest for the night A bit later I vomited I thought that was the end of it But for the rest of the night l kept vomiting almost every 30-40 minutes Even after my stomach was completely empty I kept vomiting Soon it was nothing but stomach fluid and bile I tried to drink water to stay hydrated but I kept throwing it up no matter how hard I tried to keep it down By 3am I had severe stomach cramps my body kept trying to vomit even though there was nothing left I was dizzy and light-headed My symptoms showed no signs of abating At this point I had to seek medical treatment I knew had to go to the hospital I wanted to avoid it I had no idea how different Taiwanese hospitals would be whether I would be able to find an English speaking doctor or what it would cost me my US health insurance has lapsed and I don't qualify for Taiwanese NHI My Taiwanese roommate called a taxi and took me to the ER at NTU Hospital I was immediately checked-in by an English speaking nurse Within 20 minutes I was given IV fluids and anti-emetics They took blood tests and did an ultrasound to ensure it wasn't gall stones or appendicitis From there I was given a diagnosis a particularly severe case of Acute Viral Gastroenteritis aka the stomach flu After about 3 hours on an IV I began to feel slightly better my nausea disappeared and my stomach began to calm down I was discharged with a prescription for anti-emetics and pain medication Each day since lve gotten progressively better and am now pretty much back to normal The bill for the ER visit? US$8000 Eighty American Dollars Out of pocket Full cost No discounts No insurance At one of the best hospitals in Taiwan And if I had NHI it would have been a fraction of that This could have easily cost me hundreds or even thousands in the US without insurance But here in Taiwan I was able to receive speedy quality care comparable to what I would have gotten in a US hospital for relatively small amount of money Given this experience I no longer have a reason to fear or hesitate getting care in Taiwan should I ever need it America it's time to stop making excuses thatpettyblackgirl the US has no excuse Meme
