In many countries with Universal Health Care you don't get a bill.
I think the point that Triskelion was making (if I understood) is that you are in fact getting billed. Just in a round about fashion, ultimately it comes out of your taxes directly, or in the cost of merchandise and services you purchase.

If a company pays taxes, and those taxes (in part) go towards your medical care, then items that the company sells you cost more, so they can obtain the money that will be paid in taxes, that then pay your bill.

MacLeod, how do you figure you're not getting billed?
