Is there some obvious way of reducing the cost of a doctor's visit? A free clinic is out of the question (ours is only open on Tuesdays, and I would feel guilty for usurping the resources of those who really can't pay). And the best I could see on the site for our local walk-in clinic was that their fees were "often cheaper than an emergency room visit," which isn't promising.
I will pay for an expensive visit to the doctor I went to when I had insurance, but if there's a better way, I'd love to hear it.
(I don't have much hope, but I posted this to see if I was stupidly overlooking something. I will not consider it amiss if you comment just to say, "Nope, you're fucked," or to gloat about your country's national health care system.)
