Health insurance

Last week one Korean guy got locked in the washroom in my School. The point is that, instead of waiting for help, he decided to jump out the window. First floor. Maybe he was a bundle of nerves. Who knows...

After the Jump, the teachers called up the 911 (like 112 in Spain). And whenever you phone 911 an ambulance not only comes but a fire truck comes as well.
The ambulance took him to the hospital and he passed there one night. Altough He injured his back he is OK.

It wasn´t until the day after that he found out he hasn´t got Health Insurance. Do you know how much he has to pay for the "service"? About $4500. Can you believe it?

I suposse he forgot to contract the Health Insurance because it only costs $1.5 per day!!!

So.. don´t forget to contract a good Health Insurance when you travel abroad.

He was probably waiting to reach 3.000 days keeping a perfect health!

Los Caracoles de mi madriguera queremos suponer que el Coyote sí que contrató un seguro ¿no?

A veces no nos damos cuenta de la suerte que tenemos aquí con ciertas ventajas sociales (y esto me reuerda un interesante post del Zorro)

El interesante blog del Zorro se quedo sin un comentario mio que en algun momento tendre tiempo de escribir. El sistema sanitario espanhol no es gratis como tanto le gusta a la gente asumir, de hecho es uno de los mas caros si tienes en cuenta lo que pagas anualmente y lo que recibes a cambio. 1.5$ / dia es muchisimo menos de lo que tu pagas dia a dia por tu SS en Espanha.
