18,000 a year might die from no health insurance.
But how many will die from the financial stress of being forced to pay for something where the same money could be used for daily necessities they know they will need compared to the chance they might have a medical event.
Or how many die with insurance participating in a system that encourages finding & treating the littlest thing wrong with numerically imprecise & imperfect out of context testing. Once your in the system of US health care you many never get out. It's a medical sandtrap and financial vortex.
