This is how gangster capitalism works: use leverage - patient desperation and the legal system - to jack up prices. And if people die because they can't pay, well, too bad.

I personally do not necessarily think that Medicare-for-all is necessarily the best route to reform our healthcare system, but the problem we have is that Big Medicine and the Republican party are so fucking corrupt that there will eventually be a political tidal wave against the system. Bernie-care might be the end result, whether I or anyone else thinks it's the best alternative or not.

I'm sorry your friend(s) are suffering.
