    Your story leaves me almost at a loss for words. And this is what may happen with a private health insurance?

    How would this pan out for someone uninsured? Would s/he just be left to die? Or treated and rendered a destitute debt slave for life?

    Here you wouldn't be charged a dime, neither for the treatment nor the evacuation, insurance or no, even if everything went as planned. In fact, the gov't would refund your wage loss during your sick leave.

    I hope everything turn out OK in the end, both medically and financially.
