No, get private health care coverage, if you want. No coverage, no treatment unless charity of some sort voluntarily steps in. Private coverage options should become competitive but will also underwrite each applicant and possibly deny coverage in some circumstances. In that case, a public form may be needed but paid for by the insured.

Yes but No, people could also be drug addicts so I still think you should pay for your medication however if you are not eligible to afford it then it should be covered.

Ensure that patients will not become addicted, and also ensure that doctors or pharmacists are 100% certain that they are trying to help and not just make money.
