Listen Up, America!
A couple nights ago, I was driving all around Delaware looking for a cheap place to get re-evaluated for a concussion. I drove from New Castle to Middletown looking for help. They all told me I need a primary physician. Mind you, I went to the emergency room in Middletown, DE which is where I went weeks before to get evaluated. So I did not understand why they couldn't help me. So I landed at a medical aid unit in Glasgow, DE which I thought would help me.
It was literally just a fancy MedExpress just with a ChristianaCare name on it. I paid around $50-$250 plus dollars for a visit there. Nothing was accomplished and they said that I'll need to visit a concussion clinic soon.
America ... Honey.
We need free healthcare. I don't care what anybody thinks. I basically paid loads of money for a piece of paper that says I can't play any sports. We shouldn't be charged for anything besides surgery. The price of a surgery should not extend past $600 to $800 dollars.
I should be able to have my vitals checked for FREE, a regular check up for FREE, and birth control for FREE. I should be able to be sick and be healed for FREE. I should be able to get hit by a car and be able to ride in the ambulance for FREE.
Not many people have the funds to continuously visit multiple doctors offices and pay $50 to $100 in co-pays. Neither do these people have the funds to pay $1000 dollar visits everytime something happens to them or their families.
Countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, and North Korea all offer free health care. So why can't America?
It's honestly not fair and this should be fixed.. even though it's most likely never going to happen especially with a certain person in office.
I hope you listened, America.
