We're not going to get anywhere by debating this.
My view is clear that if I fall ill in the US my first priority is to get somewhere else - ideally HK since that's where I can get treatment for free (or at least I've already paid for it through my taxes) and I believe I will get medical treatment based on effectiveness, not on the profit to the hospital. There is a remarkable correlation in the US, I believe, between what the medics call "best" and what those who pay call "most expensive". I don't think this is either a coincidence or based on medical grounds. The more treatments they can propose and the longer they can keep you alive, but in hospital, the more money they will make. That is completely the wrong way to have a medical service incentivised.
