    Sucks to have this happen to you and I agree the system is absolutely terrible. That being said, you're lucky that your injury wasn't more severe.

    I've already broke my colarbone three times so here it goes:

    – in a private hospital it you have an 30€/month insurance the full costs are roughly 200€. if you don't have insurance to have to pay the full price: 2.500€.
