England is just starting with private pay. The system is so horrible that those who can afford private pay are paying out of their own pockets to get treatment

I'm really astonished at how poorly informed you are on this issue. England had private-pay health insurance when I lived in London working for Exxon in the mid-1980's. It's something called BUPA and it's typically offered as a fringe benefit for executive and professional-types in the Top 10% of the income scale.
