Cost of medical care

I'm an American living in China in a rural area of S.E. China.  
I have also lived in a small city in Sichuan province (middle/southwest).  
I've been  here four years, so I think I can address part of your question.
Neither medical care nor education is free here in China.
Some of the larger work units have their own clinics or small hospitals, and they
can provide care for a reduced price for their employees.  
Most Chinese do not have medical insurance.
The medical care here is very cheap by western standards; however,
the average Chinese worker makes around 1000 yuan a month (about $125 U.S.).
(My salary, as a "foreign expert" is 3300 yuan -- about $400 U.S.)
In the small hospital in my town, an overnight stay costs about 100 yuan (around $12).
One of my students recently had an abortion, and had complications.  Her medical
bill was 4000 yuan -- (about 4 months wage for the average Chinese).
When I was in Sichuan, we sponsored the heart operation for a local orphan --
we had to send him to Chongqing for the surgery.  We were originally quoted
a price of 10,000 yuan (about $1200 U.S.).  But the final bill was around
35,000 yuan -- much higher than most Chinese could ever dream of paying!
So I would say that the case that was mentioned on the broadcast was very likely true --
in fact, I experience situations like this regularly with my own students.
