A State Health Service is a policy where the state covers the costs of healthcare for certain operations, medicines, types of disease, and/or classes of people.
State health services are one of the best methods for increasing a nation's average Lifespan and combating Contagious Diseases, rampant Drug Addiction, Hospital Overcrowding, and Doctors Strikes. They also cut down on some Unemployment. The services are favored by the poor, the socialists, the retired, and the state employees who work in hospitals, but are derided by the wealthy and the capitalists. However, it is also one of the most expensive government programs, and an easy target of criticism by all voting groups, especially if the quality and quantity slides.
