How does a medical service differ from another service?

The fact that it has no alternative, i.e. to refuse it in an urgent case will not work. You don’t have to have a haircut in a hairdresser, save money and get a haircut yourself, but if you have a toothache, you don’t want to, but you still need to go to the dentist. Or if there is appendicitis, then operate, and nothing else.

A medical service is directly related to health and sometimes to a person’s life; the demand for this service is almost not elastic, i.e. despite the annual growth in prices for medicine, the demand for it does not fall significantly.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
