    is a great model.   It's National Insurance.  There are four plans and everyone MUST purchase a plan; if you can't afford it, you are subsidized or paid for outright.   The plans compete and have specialties.  

    When my husband had pneumonia and had to go to the ER, he paid 100NIS (about $22 at the time) and was in and out in about 45 minutes (on Shabbat!!!) with medicines.

    I would love to see it here.

    How did I live without him?
