    Americans are never too ill to work! They would prefer to work until they dropped. That way the employer has to look after their medical costs; else get sued.

    … get ill.

    Benefits, maybe.

    But if they cannot afford hospital, die.

    That is the flaw in America’s capitalist government. :@

    They really need a NHS of their own.

    Better in England. =]

    If they qualify for social security disability or are over age 65, then they can also qualify for Medicare. If their income is below a certain level, they qualify for Medicaid. The real problem is if you are working, but making too much to qualify for Medicaid and too little to afford private health insurance. I’ve seen docs advise patients to quit their jobs if they get cancer or something so that they qualify for Medicaid and won’t go bankrupt paying medical bills.

    They may have to just suffer or die unless they can find some welfare or charitable service, or family or friend who will support them, and there’s no guarantee they will be able to do that (based on direct knowledge of some American’s situation).

    If you fall of the edge in the USA, it’s tough shit buddy…
