Another question that came into my mind because of a combination of a thread, and my watching the first season of Friday Night Lights. The accents are a bit hard to understand especially with no subtitles but I get the gist of it.
Anyway, I do understand that medical treatment in USA is not free and that people need medical insurance, which can be expensive.
However if a child plays sport for a school and gets injured what happens then. Some of the players look as if they come from homes that cannot afford insurance so does the school provide this for the team while they practise or play? If so how do they afford it - does it levy team members, or all the children attending the school or what.
I am curious as we do not have such a set up in New Zealand
