As I am from Eastern Europe, maybe I am able to make it a little bit clearer.
From my point of view, as I know both parts of the world, I would say this is something like "another world". I am not saying that your or my world is good or bad, it is simply different.
The systems are different, history and cultures are different. I repeat again, there is not anything beeing good or bad!
E.g the wages are very different.
To be honest I have never been able to understand the health system in the USA - I do not even know what to say: is it good or bad, is it better than Slovak or Polish? I do not know. It is for sure different.
MR in my country costs about 120 Euro in Poland as well. My health insurance company pays for it - all of us have health insurance here.
I must wait about 6 weeks to get there. In Canada people must wait even 8 months.
I think there is no clear and fast answer.
