This chart makes it visually very easy to see the prices of medical procedures in the USA, Korea, Singapore, and India.
Fun personal story about Indian medical costs:
In 2013 I got bit by a homeless guys pit bull and had to go to the hospital and get a full set of rabies shots.
Insurance paid $7,500 for the first set of shots, and $350/each for the 4 follow-up shots.
I was going to India THREE DAYS AFTER I GOT BIT, and the same shots cost: $50 for the first set of shots, and $7/each for the 4 follow-up shots.
The Indian healthcare system is far less regulated than the USA, so the quality of care was….questionable at times…but the difference in cost was staggering!
$9,000 vs $78 😳
