It would be rather unusual since at the time health care was generally rather rudimentary - especially in many parts of Russia - and thus more affordable than it is today. Only very few countries at the time had anything like Universal Health Care (or rather, the beginnings of it). And they weren't socialist which I'm sure Lenin was painfully aware of since one of the main problems of the early Soviet Union was to find friends and allies.
