"Now before the liberal paradise comes crashing down on some people's heads and they start throwing around disclaimers, this is how China's system works. If your illness is job related, they will take care of it. If not, you're on your own.

For example, if you break your ankle while harvesting the rice crop, you get it fixed. Have a prolapsed uterus because you're 60, YOYO (You're On You'r Own)." - JLC

----------------------


I'm guessing that the Chinese government interferes less in medicine than the United States government does so healthcare is probably considerably cheaper than in the United States? Another words there are probably alternatives in China that are just not available in the United States. It may not be the high tech stuff we got but at least it's something?

Also it is probably less total number of years of Education to call oneself a Physician in China than in United States? Perhaps more equal to our Bachelors or Masters degree than the 20 years of education + internship + residency that it takes to become a doctor in the United States? (U.S. = grade school, + middle school, + high school, + bachelors degree, + 4 years of Medical school, + internship, + residency?)
