You're characterizing TriCare as "socialized medicine".

It's not. It's just like the healthcare most Americans receive and managed by Humana and other insurers. throughout most of the country.

Tell him to look up the Canadian system, the UK system, the Swiss system and the Australian system just for a start. All of them are described as socialized healthcare but none of them are administered that way.

The thing is, the procedure that they say she is getting is an outpatient procedure, and she's in the hospital for a week.

Mrs. RNG who has worked in a hospital setting most of her professional life brought that up. I speculated that perhaps with her being First Lady and all they would be way overcautious with her.

But Mrs. RNG says that there is all kinds of data that shows unless there are some strange overriding circumstances at home, recovery rates are quicker at home where hospital expertize and/or equipment isn't needed plus no matter how careful they are, hospitals are still an excellent place to get infections.

So let's just say there's more to this than meets the eye.
Thanks from Kate and Clara007
