The Canadian system is great. Wait times for critical care are very short.
There are no co--pays, no HMO to rule on whether care is "allowed" and
people are free to choose any doctor they want. Home care, drugs for
people over age 65 and drugs after the first $1000/yr for everyone else
is covered. Heart surgery, cancer surgery, transplants are all fully
covered with no limits. Nursing home care, post stroke rehab,
physiotherapy is covered. Health coverage is not linked to your job, so
you can change jobs without worry. If you travel within the country
you are still covered.
And the Canadian system covers 100% of the population at about 50% of the cost of the American system.
Why do people try to say that Canadians hate their health care program?
