True. It's becoming an obstacle for the middle class. I have excellent insurance and was still billed $940 after insurance coverage for an ER visit for a piece of metal in my eye. Likewise, if I went there for suspect coronavirus symptoms and testing I would expect to pay ...$940. Socialized medicine clearly has it's benefits.
