Quality care is everyone's prerogative but high costs prevent many to avail it. An average middles class citizen in the west can't even think of surgery or other advanced healthcare treatments, courtesy their exorbitant prices. Add to this the hefty expenditure one would have to do for post-operative and after-care services. The other problem ailing the middle class is an inadequate medical insurance policy. Buying something as important and a bit expensive as something like insurance cover, one thinks that it'll provide them complete protection in times of need. But, they what they come across is a different reality altogether. Imagine having to shell heavy out-of-pocket expenses despite a modest cover.
