    Or you can go get on Medicare/Medicaid or a myriad of other state and local programs for the indigent.

    But it's much easier for someone to whine-n-cry because they can't get something handed to them on a silver platter.

    You could always get one of these new fangled things called a "job" - you can even choose one with benefits to your liking if you want..

    No, I recommend just staying at home and waiting until someone from Owe Bama's Traveling Health Care Clinic comes to your town and waddle down and get your ingrown toenails taken off for free. If that isn't an option then I guess you might just have to break down and get a job with medical benefits. If you can't find a job then I guess you're fucked and will just have to die. Sucks to be you.

    Yep, medical tourism from the US has been on the rise in Costa Rica for some time (and will probably get a boost from the whole Rush debacle). It's pretty cool because the tourists come and maybe stay at a hotel, maybe do some eco-touristy shit and bring their fat wallets with fat dollars for some much needed foreign exchange. Then again, there's also the risk of undermining the private system by making stuff more expensive if enough come and drawing talent away from the public system; but at least for now that seems under control.
