We had a case here in Washington State where a single mother sent her 15-yr-old to Band Camp in Canada. Kid got sick and she brought him home to disastrous financial consequences at the hands of the US health care system (and she had insurance).

It would have been far cheaper if she left the kid in Canada until he got well.
