Ah, Healthcare in Belgium
When you don't have a lot to hang our hat on, you will turn anything into a coat rack take what you can get (better put: beggars can't be choosers). So, in the midst of yesterday's abundant wet snow, coupled with the ever-dwindling number of daylight hours, I wasn't all that pleased to receive a bill for a recent ER visit. Except that, when I opened the bill, I was overjoyed to find the cost of an ER visit here to be a mere (drumroll, please) 21,53€.
Only in Belgium, never in the United States of Uninsured-Middle-Class America.
