I visited the doctor today and also went to the pharmacy. Think about the cost of this in the US, especially if you do not have health insurance and need to pay for it 100% out of pocket.
Here is my bills.....
Doctors Office Visit € 25.00
5 days antibiotics € 10.98
Codeine Cough Syrup € 6.10
Nasal Spray € 9.18
Total Damages € 51.26 = 61 USD
Huh? Thats it? Woo hoo!! That is less than what I would have paid in the US with all of my co-pays and deductibles etc!
I have noticed that the cost of medical care and products is significantly less even when you are not covered by the national health care system.
