"None of them will be presented a bill at any time." (UK NHS)

The most salient benefit of universal health care being incorporated in the US is that universal healthcare provides quality medical care to any citizen throughout a lifetime without ever incurring a cost to the individual (or achild's parents). Thus there is never any hesitation about seeking medical help because of an inability to pay or a reluctance to beg charity through a social services hospital.
