OK I hate to say this but,
As a Brit I have both private and NHS
I had cataracts, private treatment in three weeks, one week apart each eye. NHS probably a six month wait, one month apart each eye if I'm lucky.

My Wife 15 years ago kidney issues, several hospital visits. referred and went private, op next day. NHS would have been three months. So
if you want current private US standards, yes maybe trillions, if you want a safety net for urgent issues and delays for non life threatening issues then a twentieth of that cost. What Medicare are you looking for?
