Another reason for national health insurance is the stupid fights you have with your insurance company.
We called an ambulance for an emergency with our daughter (it turned out fine, that's another story), and when the bill came, it turns out that THIS PARTICULAR AMBULANCE COMPANY is not freakin' covered by UNITED HEALTH CARE's stupid insurance.
Can you imagine? Like you're supposed to ask 911 when you call, "do you take United Health Care?"
