      >The Soviet healthcare system was plagued by shortages of medical equipment, drugs, and diagnostic chemicals, and lacked many medications and medical technologies available in the Western world. Its facilities had low technical standards, and medical personnel underwent mediocre training. Soviet hospitals also offered poor hotel amenities such as food and linen. Special hospitals and clinics existed for the nomenklatura which offered a higher standard of care, but one still often below Western standards.

        They don't give to you the same med they give to the ultrarich. It's not even a conspiracy. They usually won't give treatments to you that cost more than 20'000 bucks because your insurance won't cover it and force them to go for the cheapest option. If you're rich, you can pay them yourself.

            Medical error is the leading cause of death, there is no such thing as a doctor shortage, the fewer of them we have the better off we all are.

          Doctors are extremely greedy people, everyone who goes into medicine wants to be rich, but they end up frustrated because their wealth is always comparatively meager compared to the truly rich people, such as the insurance company bosses they work for
