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