    Well, you do have a lot of irish blood diluted into your country. That might pose a problem.

    There really aren't wait times like that. If you need something fixed you will get it fixed. If you need it today you will get it when they wake up the surgeon. If you need something that is not at all urgent you may need to wait a while.

    Law now demands that everyone shall be seen by a specialist no more than one month after their issue is brought to the attention of a hospital. That does not always include that a surgery is done within that timeframe but it will have been scheduled and you will have been helped as much as humanly possible in the time given.

    What if there are simply not enough doctors?

    Anecdote #2: My wife needed to see a nerve specialist, but it wasn't an emergency. She never saw one, because the number of emergency patients was always higher than the number of possible appointments, nationwide. Again, our family doctor told us she needed the care, but would be waiting indefinitely for it.

    the answer is kind of obvious, Spool.

    if there aren't enough doctors, then there aren't enough doctors.

    how is that a problem specific to UHC?

    EDIT: Even though that's a problem somebody somewhere deserves to be slapped for the country having.

    Brain drain. Doctors don't make much in Ireland compared to other places because of cost control, so they leave for greener pastures once they have specialized skills.

    Not to patronize, but have you talked about your doctor(s) about that.

    Number of years back I was on a similar number, and was heavily advised to cut everything I could because they couldn't reasonably control for the ways they'd all inter-react with my system.

    I would recommend at least asking them about the possibility of such a problem, and their thoughts.

    French healthcare.

    This is what I know:

    1. All pharmacies have green neon crosses highly visible for some reason and there are a jillion of them.

    2. That reason is probably that if you sneeze, the french will go "SACRE BLEU YOU ARE SICK GO GET ZOME MEDICIN!"

    Okay, cool. Yeah, I agree that there would be a lot of details to work out, but it seems like it would be simpler and better than the current situation. If people ended up preferring Medicare and private health insurance gradually went out of business due to lack of customers, you'd be fine with that due to the free market and all? I mean, it's not as if the government is obliged to protect an industry's business model.

    America used to pride itself on having a can-do attitude.

    I dunno exactly when to pin-point the change, but now it seems like if there are any challenges at all to overcome the national response is to declare it impossible.

    1962: We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.

    2012: We choose not to go to the corner store today because we are lazy.

    The last time you brought that up it was a bad argument, and it hasn't gotten any better in the last year.

    2. That reason is probably that if you sneeze, the french will go "SACRE BLEU YOU ARE SICK GO GET ZOME MEDICIN!"

    3. I don't know more about french healthcare.
    4. 10,000 people died of heat-related illness in the summer of 2003 while the health system was on vacation.
    Weren't they all old, though?

    I'm ready for some French-style healthcare. Fix Medicare right up! We'll be solvent in no time!
    Yeah, I thought that was due primarily to nobody in France knowing how to deal with real heat because it never gets that hot there, and old people being pretty fragile.

    Also, are we really going to get cut up about France? It's France for crying out loud. What have they done for me lately besides setting up a massively dysfunctional economy that might screw me into a Romney presidency?

    People in large parts of Europe also die during the winter when Russia decides to close the pipeline to fuck with Ukraine.

    So there is some seasonal flavors of death here.
