      I lived in USA for close to a decade before moving to Australia as a permanent resident last year, and I completely agree to every word in this article.
      For me USA doesn’t have healthcare but rather health insurance. Medical bills can make anyone go bankrupt overnight. It has happened and it’s continuously happening and will keep on happening over and over again, just because of screwed capitalist system.
      And note, with a good insurance I had to multiple times wait for doctor appointment easily for more than six weeks. What’s the use of that? You can die by then. Total carp. COVID19 has exposed USA crap to the world.

    I’m an Australian/American dual citizen originally from the USA. The more conservative members of my USA family vehemently oppose universal health care with the main argument being “where is that money going to come from”?
    This article is fantastic at explaining things and allows me to “show them the math”. I also appreciate how the information is referenced so I can check the facts for myself.
    Thanks for putting this out there.

      Currently in NZ as a nurse seeking and slightly confused whether to move in Aus or in the US. Most family members in US but can’t help to think long term with all the differences pointed out. Thanks for this article.

    this article really helped me with my year 11 Health Assignment so much! A paragraph was dedicated to the similarities and differences between the Australian and American Healthcare Systems and this article really summed it up for me! Thankyou 🙂

    I’m currently in my last year of law school writing a research project on Restorative Justice and the United States & Australian healthcare systems; this article was SO helpful in explaining the legal and structural differences. THANK YOU.
