uld have to pay $12,000 to re-attach the end of his ring finger, and $60,000 to re-attach that of his index finger.
"Being a hopeless romantic, Rick chose his ring finger," Moore quipped in a typically sardonic voiceover.
It also follows a woman whose young daughter falls seriously ill but who said she was refused admission to a general hospital and instructed to go to a private one instead. By the time she got to the second hospital, it was too late to save the girl.
One of the most controversial passages of the film, due to be released in the United States on June 29, compares health care in the United States to that which Islamic militant suspects receive at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
"I think when Americans see this they are not going to focus on Cuba or Fidel Castro," Moore said, referring to the controversy surrounding his trip to Cuba, which has prompted a U.S. government investigation.
"They are going to say to themselves, 'You're telling me that the al Qaeda detainees are receiving better health care, the people that helped participate in the attacks of 9/11 are receiving better health care from us than those who went down to rescue those who suffered and died on 9/11?"
After the first screening Saturday last, a breathless Moore said that he has lost 25 pounds since he started making the movie. "I started thinking it was somewhat hypocritical to be making a film about health care, and wasn't taking care of my own health," the globular filmmaker told the global press corps.
"I'm actually a very skinny person from the midwest, with all due repect to fellow midwesterners. So I started to walk around the block every day, and eating these things that you refer to as fruits and vegetables. I started thinking that one way to fight the system is to take better care of yourself."
