英検1級2次試験:Is the Japanese healthcare system a good model for other countries?

Is the Japanese healthcare system a good model for other countries?

(日本の医療制度は、他国にとって良いモデルであるか?)

 

I agree with the opinion that the Japanese healthcare system is a good model for other countries. I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, in Japan, patients are able to receive high quality healthcare at an affordable cost. This is because the Japanese government adopts universal healthcare system. This means that all the citizens in Japan need to pay only 30% of total medical fee at the most, and the government pay remaining fee.

 

Second, everyone can call the ambulance for free at any time in Japan. In addition, according to recent data, in Tokyo metropolitan area, they arrive in only 6 minutes after the calling. On the other hand, in the United States, they arrive less quickly, and it costs at least 1,000 US dollars when we call them. Also, in some foreign countries, patients need to pay extra fees for transportation according to the distance.

 

From these two reasons, I believe that the Japanese healthcare system is one of the good models for other countries. (169 words)

 

【内容の要約】

結論:Agree

①患者は高い質の医療を安く受けられる(国民皆保険制度)

②救急車をいつでも無料で呼べる

 

「日本では、どの医療機関にかかるか自由に選べる」というメリットもあると思いますが、他国の医療システムと比較するのが難しいと思ったので、2番目の理由に救急車を上げました。

「救急車をタクシー代わりに使う人についてはどう思う?」という反論がQ&Aで飛んできそうなので、それに対する捌き方も考えないといけないですね。
