View Full Version : Why is health care so expensive?

08-01-2008, 12:47 PM
Wasn't it like $100 in the previous games?

I've died 187 times and my bills are like $750k or thereabouts.

Is this some sly Rockstar social commentating on the price of modern health care?

I've finished the game have only got like $10k.

10k, seriously? I ended up with 900k +

Basically, the richer you get, the more expensive the bills are.

Just don't die, or get arrested. It really isn't that hard ;D According to my stats, I have died 14 times. I have been arrested once :3

I don't save after doing crazy stuff. I save, then whip out my choppers and stuff and have fun blowing up stuff/myself. Once I want to do a story mission, I load my game.

I have somewhere in the region of $400,000, which is kinda average. I have completed it 100% so I use cheats now and I only die when I am falling from high place or I get shot and forget to get more health. I never get arrested.

Medical bill:
If you have:...... You pay:
$10............... $1
$100,000......... $10,000

So basically... 10% of what you have? ;p

So he should have had 7.5million at the time he got health care for 750k?

08-01-2008, 06:58 PM
Nah, the bill only gets up to 10k.

08-01-2008, 07:04 PM
Then the OP lied about the bills going up to 750k.

I've died 187 times and my bills are like $750k or thereabouts.

I think he means in the stats, the total amount of bills paid, not a single bill.

i noticed the same thing when my money is high they take more away it does get annoying because you lose a redicously amount of money

I think Jose is right. 750K should be the total spent on health care. It has to be an off-handed commentary from R* about the ridiculous cost of health insurance in the states.

When I used to die I didn't use to save it, but now I just save it anyway. I have noticed it's quite expensive, but it doesn't bother me that much because there isn't anything to spend money on anyway.

Yeah, when you've bought all the clothes there's no need for lots of money, only a few hundred dollars for food, telescope thingy and some activities like drinking or bowling. Maby R* will make a use for the money one day.

Yeah the hospital was expensive >_> But if you save wisely it won't cost a dime. :P
