Your two-tier system is "Provincial healthcare or crossing the border."

As I said, all healthcare is two tier. Might as well bite the bullet and admit it. Then a country can administer it rationally.

Just how does that work. One side gets experimented on and the other side gets the good meds??

The rich don't visit clinics, they visit doctors with their own office. Let me guess which group you belong to, lol.

It is "single payer" but only about 2/3rds of it.

That 2/3rds of our health care is enough to keep most of us going, smoothly.

When my children were born, no invoice was issued to us. Not even by the Midwives that we had in attendance (who also looked in on my wife for a month afterwards). We brought home a baby, not a bill for thousands.

What part of "cross the border" is eluding you?

Yep. I have no beef with your system. I don't think it's the best, I think a hybrid of the French, Australian, and Japanese systems would work best for the U.S., preferably on a state-by-state basis. But we could copy yours word for word and be in a much better situation.

You will never, ever be allowed to have a different system from the one that you have. Those multi-trillion dollar lobbies are more powerful than any temporal authority in your country.

It will Never happen.

Here in the home of healthcare the interest to open private clinics is there but the will isn't, they don't want to smear the legacy of Tommy

I hear ya.


The door is opened for private care as a result of the Province(s) delisting procedures in order to get the budget match what they can deliver.

Ohip covered my stay at shouldice. It was foreigners ( like a NY police cap't I met there) who paid in cash. He was HAPPY to pay for the quality work they do.

Having seen and lived the comparison in fail rates compared to ANYBODY else, I can see why.
