"Save the mythology surrounding the idea that Scandinavia is a veritable socialist paradise, the left covets no other fable more dearly than they do the notion that communist Cuba serves as a model for what centralized health care can and should be.
"Neither is true, and countless reports and studies have debunked both myths. But still they refuse to die. Among the few benefits associated with President Barack Obama’s decision to unilaterally relax trade and travel restriction with Cuba will be the disillusionment of the American leftists who travel to Cuba expecting to encounter a medical wonderland."

"One of the problems is that no small number of Cuban doctors have left the country looking for better opportunities abroad,” she added. “They are considered deserters.”
"But who could blame them, considering that Cuban doctors are paid by the state an average of between $30 and $50 per month for their services.
"None of this will be a problem for the anticipated new industry of American medical tourism to Cuba, where wealthy and credulous urbanites will fly to Havana for the thrill of exotic surgery. They will get the best care that this island prison nation can provide, of course, but only at the expense of the indigenous people. No worries. Presumably those kind-hearted liberals who travel to Cuba to take advantage of their progressive country’s services have the very best intentions. "

Ah, socialized medicine. Isn't it great.

I'm not seeing Cuba as a medical tourism area for wealthy urbanites. It was never considered top notch destination for the wealthy. It was for those with the least amount of wealth. That's what it was about. The wealthy can go anywhere or nowhere. Medical tourism is for those that are not wealthy. So, when a Cuban doctor goes into a country he is going in paid and a doctor from that specific country may simply amputate a limb because it's more cost effective for himself than a surgery. The Cuban doctor preforms the surgery.

The Cubans were able to eradicate several diseases and have always stated that they needed access to medication.

I will never understand why it is the elite have nothing better to do than to make sure that no one else besides them can have or afford medical care, food, water and housing and then expect the rest of the world to pat them on the back.

I just want Cuba open so I can go there and fish for yard long speckled trout that have never seen a modern lure.

I have Medicare here.
