Eoj,
there is no preventative medicine in this country unless you can pay for it.
Simple as that unfortunately and I share your shock at finding this out after living abroad.
It is indeed, shocking.

Having recently returned to Ireland where my parents live I am shocked to hear that those over 65 on social security are excluded from aids which promote social & healthy living for ailments of that age to include such basic things as hearing devices. I also think 60 is not specifically a common denominator or age pulled out of a hat.
Screening should be available it is after all prevention & awareness is also prevention.
