We have already talked about the fact that Americans are actively going abroad for medical treatment because the insurance does not always cover expensive medical services in their country. But at the same time, the cost of the most simple medical procedures in the USA is high. According to the ACA law (so-called Obamacare), every American must be insured. But ophthalmologic and dentistry treatment are not covered by the standard insurance in the US. If the patients want to treat the teeth, they have to pay for the procedure or buy additional "dental" insurance. But the cost of one tooth filling in the US is at least $1,300.
And what if a person comes to America without insurance? How much will the standard medical procedures cost?
In America, a person should have a lot of money. If someone suddenly gets sick of the stomach, tooth or head, visit a doctor may cost thousands of dollars.
