Of course, this is just one isolated instance, but for all the flak that India gets about its inefficient bureaucracy, I couldn’t help but notice that this was the simplest health care experience I’ve ever had. I filled out zero forms, I paid the full amount in cash, and all the work was done in a day. Crazy.
This all made me wonder, and this is probably a ridiculously stupid question, but what about the flipside of the idea that everyone gets health insurance? What if the US banned health insurance? What would happen?
