Why the penalty for latecomers?
Regarding the Oct. 11 letter “Same access as Japanese citizens” (from the hospital worker whose name was withheld by request): I appreciate the insight afforded by 20 years of experience in Japanese hospitals. I have no doubt that the writer has observed many instances of foreigners failing to pay their medical bills. Clearly, the failure to pay for goods or services rendered is a crime and should be dealt with as such.
