Imsorry for hitting such a personally painful issue Dalai. My problem isn't asking for money per se (except maybe when people are wilfully irresponsible or stupid). It's with a system that fails to provide an adequate safety net for people so that they have to. The health insurance thing particularly gets to me as it only covers a tiny portion of costs leaving Medicare and the patient to pick up the rest. There's also a bunch of issues around pharmaceutical companies focussing on the development of profitable drugs over needed drugs and for reasons I can't remember they cost more in Australia than almost anywhere else. Brings little socialist at heart Im all for the provision and regulation of services by the govt so that meetings needs not profit making is at the centre of services. And also because in the end if everyone has to ask for money for these things we are rapidly going to run out of money to give. It's a one of kind of answer and it can't address the real problems of health funding.

I aware of the limitations to my insurance but I figure I'm not doing anything I don't do at home 3 days a week without drama. And there is unlimited repatriation covered so anything that leaves you fit to travel they just send you home for treatment. The red and the creek aren't difficult to access areas and I have emergencies funds at home plus normal insurance. But again, in a fairer world, we could have publicly provided insurance based on real rather than imagined risk and climbing wouldn't be an issue.
