What Cuba says it spends on medical services is a fraction of what it costs hospitals to provide the same services in the United States.

Anyone have the photos handy of the Cuban hospitals?
AP get a life you bunch of propaganda idiots! You stooges like Cuba's health care so much, pack your damn bags and move there! You won't have to worry about having the socialized health care repealed, after all, this is the reason for the article, your attempt to convince Americans what a great deal they got in the socialized Obamacare!
Next time one of you ignorant idiots go to a doctor's office, ask the doctor who you are giving your personal health issues to, your personal doctor, or the government the doctor now works for?
Choice? Wait until an 87 year old American asks for bypass surgery and he or she is told they can't have it by a panel of bureaucrats in Washington and they pass away, the family can't sue the government for wrongful death, they are immune under Obamacare, and this is only the beginning until the conservatives smack this crap back to the socialist where this shit came from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way, want to bet Cuba does not provide free, free, free contraceptives and condoms to their citizens either!!!!
There are some pictures here that are not for the squeamish:
Bet they don’t have millions of Med Mal lawyers waiting to sue any provider for anything.
Or thousands of insurance agents in every community...
I will gladly pay for any AP employee to move to Cuba so as to enjoy their beautiful health care :)
How much to ‘journalists’ make in Cuba vs. the US. Unlike with medicine, that’s a fair comparison because the quality is the same.
Thanx for the link
But you die.
The next time one these Marxist bozos gets a serious illness, we’ll give them a choice: Cuba or the U.S. for their medical care. I’m willing to bet a lot of money 99% will choose American care. 1% (the terminally stupid) will choose Cuba for ideological reasons, literally cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
What medical care? Even their leaders leave or bring a doctor in.
Medical costs in the USA were under control until the government got involved. Same with housing costs, and higher education costs. The involvement of Medicare and Medicaid, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and student loans and grants contributed to the huge costs to citizens. Once the gov’t gets involved watch the costs go up.
I wonder if they include the cost of the AIDS prison camps in their calculations?
The fools who attempt to compare medical care in the United States to medical care in third world hell holes conveniently forget that health care costs less if you don't have to take care of people who arrive alive at the emergency rooms with very serious conditions because our nation has ambulances, EMTs, emergency dispatch, and even helicopters to get the most seriously injured or sick to specialized care quickly.
"Cuban patients also often bring their own sterile bed sheets, hypodermic needles, food and water."
In the Soviet Union, all patients brought there own bed sheets to the hospital. Those who found themselves in a hospital unexpectedly were often on a bare mattress.
How much do they pay the doctors and nurses?
It is interesting though, that Cuba and the U.S. have about the same life expectancy average - 78 years.
How many Americans are putting their lives in danger by trying to float from Miami to Havana on a raft?
What is the monthly wage for the average Cuban?
Or the average Cuban doctor?
I wonder if this ‘reporter’ (whorenalist) understands how that figures into the cost
