Rage ran rampant in a comment section. Many individuals expressed their infuriation over the ludicrous extra bill that a patient had to pay for a simple surgery.

On Twitter, a woman who refers to herself as Midge or @mxmclain humorously shared a post detailing her being charged an extra $11 for a $223 mole removal surgery because she teared up. The picture of the bill in her post listed the cost as "Brief Emotion."

Several commenters were unimpressed. They attacked the American healthcare system and the substantial amount she was expected to pay, purportedly, because of its terrible state.

One of the social media users, @WardBobbe, precisely and sarcastically responded to the $2.20 discount she got for her "Brief Emotion." This Twitter user penned:

"Yeah but 2.20 for being able to cry is a steal! Thanks for the freedom America!"

Individuals from some other countries outside of the United States were taken aback. Although they believe the NHS (National Health Service) in their home country of the United Kingdom isn't perfect, @willbxtn shared that hearing stories such as Midge's makes him grateful for their public healthcare.

@mxmclain spoke to the bill outside of the Tweet, claiming it was meant for a "depression screening." She stated that this took the form of several questions she had to answer to assess her emotional state.

This screening, Midge explained, was just a regular aspect of the physical. However, the Twitter user thinks that if individuals are going to be charged with this fee, it should be fully covered by insurance due to how imperative it is.

Nevertheless, in her original Tweet, @mxmclain was mainly poking fun along with her fellow Twitter-based netizens. Midge facetiously inquired:

"Is a lollipop too much to ask?"

Some even wondered if the whole post and picture itself was one big wisecrack, but many who implied they knew about the American healthcare system said it was real. The viral Tweet has received just under 192,000 likes.

EXPRESSING GRATITUDE

As is evident, this system itself is claimed to be deeply flawed by these many Twitter users. However, some touching interactions with individuals in the medical field can lead to the comforting idea that those in the profession genuinely care.

Not long ago, the online world helped a man known as Martin Dorey find his long-lost saviors. Dorey shared a sweet photo of his daughter, Maggie, on Twitter, who survived leukemia 17 years ago and has recently been accepted into university.

The father thanked the NHS for their part in her recovery. The Tweet went viral, reconnecting him with the nurses who cared for Maggie during her illness, who sent love, one claiming to remember Maggie. As it is, the hearts of the healers in this world come at no cost.
