Distressing medical costs in PH

This isn't to compare US health care with Philippine health care but to illustrate my dream of a time when health care in my country of birth would improve so much that it doesn't leave any patient behind.

I dream of the day when Filipino patients go to the hospital and not worry about bills, thus being spared of both their physical and financial distress.

I can only dream that Philippine leaders won't isolate themselves in their air-conditioned rooms and content themselves with the thought that they have done enough by registering their constituents under PhilHealth. That's still a dream but I have every right to continue dreaming about it.
