In Israel, they've got a unique and impressive healthcare system. Everyone gets basic health coverage from the government, but they have the freedom to upgrade their plans with additional insurance. The system is funded through taxes, but it's not a burden because it's mandatory and split evenly among everyone. I was amazed to learn that they have one of the highest life expectancies in the world, which speaks volumes about their health care quality. Despite being a small country, the diversity of their healthcare services is quite extensive.
People often hesitate to buy health insurance due to a variety of reasons. Some worry about the high costs and question if it's worth the investment, especially if they're currently healthy. Others find the entire process confusing and overwhelming, with all the different plans, terms, and coverage options. There is also a deep-seated distrust in insurance companies, fearing denial of claims or hidden charges. Lastly, a few simply gamble on their health, hoping they won't need such a safety net.
