Inspired by a viral TikTok video Angela made about her uninsured dental experience in Korea a few months ago, we're discussing some of the ways healthcare is different outside of vs. inside the U.S. As a self-employed freelancer, navigating the world of uninsured life after years of Corporate America-backed insurance plans has been... quite an adjustment! We talk about the cost differences with how much Angela paid abroad vs. what the same procedures would cost in the U.S., how the actual experience was different (and in some ways similar), and the overall system and incentive structure for citizens to be insured at all. Have you had a crazy healthcare-related experience, good or bad, abroad or in the US that you want to share? What do you think about the differences between how these systems are run? Let us know in the comments on our social media accounts!

She paid $240/year, not $120/year. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/butwhereareyoureallyfrom/support
