So what happens in the US if someone gets cancer and needs treatment then? How does that work?

No.

I think I get the joke though.

Only half-joking. If you don't have good insurance or savings you're kind of ****ed. It's the biggest theme of the show, right alongside "meth is bad".

That seems crazy to me. Is it common for people to not have decent insurance?

Say someone off here got very ill and needed treatment but didn't have savings or insurance, what happens then?

They will likely get treated then given an unpayably massive bill when they recover/leave the hospital.

This guy puts a lot of American healthcare law and standards in laymen's terms. I recommend reading his stuff if you're interested.

tbh mate I'm not interested enough to read that link but cheers anyway.

If the minutae of ACHA doesn't make your nipples hard, then nothing will.
