Thank you for visiting my blog again.

I'm going to write about this topic in a few weeks. Check it out!

Dear Dr. Kumo,

I was reading the blog of a US emergency room doctor. He was talking about health care systems in different countries, and said that:

"Japan was probably the most scary to me. Government (i.e. “single payer”) sets prices. Insurance companies are prohibited from making money. Sewing up a laceration gets paid $4.50 and a hospitalization in a room with 4 other patients is $10/night. MRIs cost a rocking $95. Patients love the system."

The doctor then concluded that therefore, doctors in Japan get paid about minimum wage. Is that true? Surely it isn't, since if it was people wouldn't be able to afford to go to medical school. So what is the system in Japan like?

Thank you for your time.
