Perspectives can vary enormously depending on your standing in life of US medical system.
I do know though I had to pick and choose where I went to the doctor. I went to university health service when I was in school because they charged only 10 dollars (and I can pay that with HRA from my crap Walmart insurance). BUT I had to pass on several tests because those costs more than regular lab tests. For example, testing for A1C for some reason costs over 200 dollars, while most other tests don’t total more than 50 dollars. And this is using tuition funded university healthcare which is much below cost and most likely staffed by interns.
You will find the only people who truly loves US healthcare are those who can afford it, or have awesome insurance coverage that would address the costs. Most Americans do not have that luxury. In particular, if you have diabetes you’d have to pay 1000 dollars a month for insulin. Anywhere else it’s 1/10th the cost. Hell you could go to Mexico and get it cheap (and in fact many Americans do this, even though it’s actually unlawful).
The only difference is in Taiwan you may not be getting absolute cutting edge medical service, but you will get something that will treat your condition. It will be affordable. If you have diabetes insulin is free. No need to ration it and die from complications.
Not once did I ever have to pass on tests in Taiwan. Doctor orders it, I go get it done, and total cost comes to about 700nt. This includes CAT scans, X Rays, Ultrasound, sleep study, etc.
All of which would have cost over 10,000 if any of them were done in the states, even with insurance.
