    Does anyone really think that having foreign health care would have saved the people that died here. Last I checked they were in a clinic getting treatment, who paid the bills after they died would not matter................

    But some of them asked for medical care and decided not to take it when they heard the price. The man of the couple who died felt ill, asked for a doctor and they decided he couldn't pay. It is interesting, as in the UK as far as I know, no one leaves the country without travel medical insurance - and if you are travelling to the US you need higher coverage. Many of the stories about those who died mention the cost of the medical treatment.

    Perhaps some person could offer him a soda from one of the wet bars.

    The MiTur is working on a plan that requires all tourists entering the DR to have insurance, like a charge on top of the tourist card.
