But you don't actually pay for you own health care. The other people in your insurance pool pay for your care, as you do theirs. Nor will you be paying directly for the development of a COVID vaccine, for example. Rugged independence is just pablum you've been fed since birth.but some people still have morals and ethics and respect freedom and perfer to be responsible for our self's like real men and women do.who pays for your subsidization ?
That is how all insurance works, you pay a premium and everyone else in that policy does as well, that is the risk pool.
When you have expensive treatment your premiums do not cover it, the entire risk pool does. Others are paying for you at that time even in private insurance.
You pay private, in a smaller risk pool, so your cost is greater because you are spreading the risk to fewer people
We pay premium which is much lower because the risk pool is the entire country.
We both have to pay, Australians just pay much less.
