Just curious and I hope it doesn't come off the wrong way.

If Healthcare is so cheap then why are there so many people coming to America to collect money and the papers they put on shul tables say they have medical debt...
Single-payer healthcare degrades quality of healthcare in the long run.  For example, unless one has supplementary insurance,  if you want to pick your surgeon, in many cases you need to pay out of pocket.

Not sure precisely the cases, but in many instances they go to America for specialized treatment.

Israel is at the forefront of medical research. But treatment, not so much.

Please take your negativity to another thread.

There are things which are not covered in the health basket that is required of the kupot to cover.
Definitely if you want to pick your own surgeon, that's not covered. But other things as well, such as expensive cancer drugs.
That's why I mentioned above that many (who can, myself included) purchase extended healthcare plans which cover things like that
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Go to Sloane Kettering and see all the Israeli kids there nebech because in Israel if you give the nurse a hard time they dont give the kid treatment. You havent seen these patients. I have. So please dont lecture me about negativity.

One more "negativity". My neighbor made aliyah and had a stroke in Israel. His kids, one a doctor, one a PA, spent inordinate amounts of time in Israel until he was well enough to come back here and he is BH fully recovered now. He said he wouldnt have his dog treated in an Israeli hospital for a serious illness. Yes, there are great trauma surgeons. But treatment for long term illness stinks.

I'm also forgetting you come from Canada so this is marginally the same for you.

I cannot speak for hospitals in the center of the country but I can tell you that Rambam hospital in Haifa has the nicest nurses and doctors that I have met. We were there for an extended period of time and from the top surgeons/head of departments we got all their whatsapp numbers to contact whenever we need to. The nurses brought us whatever we needed. Yes they are very very overworked and understaffed. They get on edge much quicker but they care! Arab/Jew/Druze the nurses in Haifa are amazing.

The losers are the Israeli citizens
not something I would expect from @Ergel  :P
Seems like you have some pent up issues with Israel. Is there something you'd like to get off your chest?
