There was no health care for the poor as they could not afford it. conversely, the rich could afford decent health care

More:

There were a number of charitable organizations that provided poor people with health care and other assistance, and these included many monasteries, convents, and churches.

In many parts of Europe, the health care rich people could afford was probably no better than what the poor could get. The best health care was available in Muslim lands, and a lot of rich people went to Cordoba for health care.

Very poor, they either made you eat certain plants, drilled holes in your head, or put leeches on you. These are only a few examples.

In Medieval times only the rich could afford health care. At this time in the world no one really knew what caused illness. Some believed it was the stars and planets, some believed it was bad smells, some believed prayers and meditation would be a cure, some used herbs and bleeding. Health care for the rich was not much improved over the poor.

Their health care is very poor. Most people can't afford to take care of themselves.

They are two different meanings. Health care is more general in meaning all the different ways health care can be implemented, including things like education and awareness. When it is combined into healthcare it means more specifically the facilities and programs that are put in place to help with health care, or care of health.

In England we have the National Health Service which is a free medical system. You have to pay so much monthly, not too much, but overall, it's free. Helped me a couple of times.

I like ASQ. They have some of the best information on Health Care Certifications. "The National Healthcareer Association has all the information you would need on anything health care related, even health care certifications."

Someone from a health care practice like a doctor or care aide will examine you and determine the status of your health. They will then report back to whoever it was that asked them to perform the assesment.

Very expensive and comprehensive health plans. Like our politicians in Washington have, but they do not have to pay for them.

As much as government plays a very big role in Health Care, it does not do this very successfully. Taking into consideration the state in which some public Health Care institutions are as well as the quality of the services rendered by these institutions. If we compare private health care with public health care, it is definitely not as similar as we would like it to be, but then again, if health care is provided by the government to us, without any payment, it is generally accepted that we be grateful. My question however referring to the above mentioned should we be satisfied with inadequate health care just because we are not paying for it?

Health care in India is extremely diverse. In most cities and towns private health care is of a good standard and in metros of the very best international standards. Public health-care is poor and understaffed and lacking amenities both in cities and in rural areas. The further one moves from urban areas the worse the health-care provision. Some rural areas have no health care provision at all , allowing local untrained practitioners of quasi medicine to fill the gap.
