A "fortune"? OT but I can't let this sit unchallenged.
"Free" healthcare in non-US countries is still costing people a fortune, they just don't know it because it comes out of their labors before they even see it. ...
The US spends ~16% of its GDP on health care. Those other countries you refer to spend as little as half that, w/ better outcomes in every measure, from patient satisfaction to life expectancy. They spend from ~8% to ~11% of their GDPs.
What you said is demonstrably false.
Also the US is the ONLY country in the world where illness or injury can lead to bankruptcy. The figures during the HCR/"Obamacare" passage were that 64% of American personal bankruptcies were related to medical costs, despite over 70% of them still even having health insurance at the time of filing!
This is all old news so I don't have links handy. If anyone interested can't find such data themselves I could
