How much do you pay for hospitalization in your country?

It’s €660 a day if you don’t have insurance. That’s a private hospital now, the state ones are free

I live in Norway which has long socialistic traditions. We have free hospital, free schools up until university, Low-cost kindergarden and other benefits. The price is we pay about 1/3 of our income in tax to the goverment. I think it’s worth it. It put of a lot of stress when you know that society has your back if you get sick.

I heard a story about a woman dying outside a hospital in the philliphines? I think it was, because the family couldn’t pay the bills. That’s pretty gruesome. Democratic socialism is good I think.

1,000-3,000 dollars for a month, according to my friends

I’ve been offered a private room when I give birth (cause of mental health) as I have to stay in for 3 days. I’m glad I’ve got a private room cause to be honest being on a ward with other crying babies would really sleep deprive me.

yes, nice, but where is “here”?

Thanks @ola. Yep the richest country in the world by far, and our health care costs are so unbelievably high. I wish a had a graph of how much we pay compared to other countries. It’s ridiculous, and everyone makes fun of us. You know who’s really laughing? Pharma all the way to the bank.

We have deer, yes. And reindeer. And wolves. I’m not sure we have mountain goats though.

I experienced this when I had the babies. So did Mr. Star. My therapist said this is a pretty universal parent experience regardless of mental health history, because of the sleep deprivation.

Yeah, but it’s not normal when it continues years after the baby stage.
