    Do you think it fair to turn the Irish away from the hospitals in Scotland?

    But aren't your hospitals for emergencies only or need referral from a GP?

    Would you turn away someone who was starving at your door ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Well yes. You go to hospital in an emergency or if referred by your GP to see a specialist. You can go to the emergency room if you want but if it's something you should normally see a GP about and it's not an emergency-well why would you go to hospital with it?

    Because they have to see you and treat you if you show up at the hospital emergency room... insured or not - unlike a doctors office where you need an appointment.

    Doctors office 85$ - Emergency Room - min 500$ - patient doesn't care because they aren't gonna pay anyways.

    So universal healthcare would be cheaper then? Here an employee earning £40,000 pays roughly £3300 a year in national insurance-an employer would pay £4,500 roughly £650 a month . it's on a sliding scale and the figures aren't spot on either and and it's different for the self employed but generally speaking how does that stack up with the cost of healthcare in the US?

    Mind you national insurance is also for state pensions, and other state benefits as well not just the NHS. You can still end up bankrupt and destitute because of long term illness but getting medical care is actually the least of your problems in those circumstances
