“bear got a little bite that got infected. we thought it was a deep splinter but ultrasound showed nothing! anyhoo he is all good! And the visit was free. It always feels like a trick. But it is not. It is simply universal healthcare. It is beautiful when a country sees value in its people being healthy and financially safe from insurmountable healthcare debt. we should try it someday,” Chrissy said.

Chrissy then took to the comment section to clarify that she knows the visit wasn’t “free” as it was paid for by taxpayer dollars.

She said, “‘It isn’t FREE, it’s paid for by taxes’ – I know that. I’m saying we pay high taxes and insurance up the ass and still have to pay for healthcare. And yeah, we have money and didn’t have to pay. It’s not like there was a tip jar. Or a jar that said ‘celebrities pay here.’”

The National Health Service in the UK, which is state-funded, provides most healthcare services to free for residents and emergency treatment is also free for visitors.

Chrissy was spotted by TMZ last week in L.A. and she took to Twitter to clarify what she told them before the outlet had a chance to run the story.
