Conversation Summary

Many people living in countries with a public health care system take for granted that should they ever need medical help, whether it be for an illness or a broken bone, it will always be available to them for free. The opposite is true in countries that solely have a private health care system, where if you can’t afford the treatment or can’t afford the insurance then you have to continue with your life as best you can.
