Keep in mind that not only are American prices inflated, but in some countries the care is partially subsidized. I can't remember all the details now but my dad was amazed when he had to be hospitalized overseas and the bill was about $200 US (including all testing and an overnight stay, too!). That kind of treatment usually is $5,000 or more in the US!
