My husband was laid off, but Japan has a plan that covers everyone...

We are living in Tokyo, Japan. We moved here, planning to stay at
least two years, hopefully more. It was a shock when my husband's
division in the company was laid off. We lost our health care.
Happily, Japan has a health care plan that covers everyone and we are
charged according to what we can pay. It even covers foreigners like
us. Doctor's visits and even the cost of medicine is very low and

Hmm. Maybe the USA should give it a try?
