American Health Insurance

Australian here. I've posted a few threads in the past about the Australian Medicare system and how our health care system works. I was wondering how much your health insurance costs and what sort of benefits do you get from it? Do you get dental care included and what do you get? If you have a heart attack what happens? If you need to see a Doctor then how much does it cost and how does it work? How much does your medication cost if you need it? Can you really be refused health insurance if you are overweight or mentally ill? An American friend of mine was trying to explain what she pays for health care per month and what it entails/provides and I just couldn't understand the whole mess. I was fascinated but it was just such an alien concept to me that it didn't sound logical. It sounds really awful. It sounded like if you were poor you didn't seek medical attention and that nobody cares about anyone else in the US. It also sounded like medication costs hundreds of dollars a month. Are you hopeful that Obamacare will radically overhaul your health care system? So many questions! Thanks!
