This isn't a lymphedema question per se, but I am interested in the answers. I am in the US and personally have private payor health insurance through my work. Most of you are in the UK and I have seen you mention your healthcare system and what is covered and what isn't. I just listened to a radio program discussing whether America could have a single payor health system and they used Canada and US as an example. I was just wondering if you UK residents have to pay a tax or a monthly premiun for your health care? Is out of pocket expense based on your income or is it same for all? Do you have easy access to providers? We have millions without insurance so i can see how it would be a good system, even though my costs will go up. Thoughts?
Please delete if this question is too off topic. Thanks
