Did the Romans have government healthcare?
But how did he miss over-taxation and corruption? I can tell you corruption is eating at the soul of this nation, it is widespread.
I don't know how medical services were distributed but it's been found that they had amazingly modern tools and techniques more similar to our era than not. Specialists in anesthesia, surgery, dental science...along with tools and techniques similar to our modern standards separated by an 1800 year dark age...
The wonderful thing about the Romans is not questioning if what they had compares to we have - its wondering if what we have now compares to what they achieved with far less science, engineering and mathematics.
I didn't take this screen name on fool's folly.
