Millions of dollars are spent on disinformation campaigns in keeping Americans ignorant of the truth about the healthcare robbery taking place, words like Socialize medicine (whatever that means) now pops up frequently in the news. Millions more are spent hiding the truth regarding the alternatives to this terrible situation and to prevent us for knowing what the Canadians have and we don’t. It is time American wake up to this corporate scam which is strangling the American industry and the wellness of the American population. Having health insurance in American should not give any one comfort that the best is provided. Losing your job equals loosing your health insurance, except you are very wealthy. The fact remains that 45 million Americans have no health Insurance and that’s a crime in the wealthiest county on the planet. How could those with healthcare find comfort that many of their countrymen go without this basic human safeguard.
Healthcare Propaganda how they are keep Single-payer off the table.
FRONT LINE INTERVIEW NURSES IN CANADA
The health care system in Canada is funded by a mix of public (70%) and private (30%) funding, with most services delivered by private (both for-profit and not-for-profit) providers.
Through all entities in its public-private system, the U.S. spends more per capita than any other nation in the world, but is the only wealthy industrialized country in the world that lacks some form of universal health care.
Health care costs in both countries are rising faster than inflation. As both countries consider changes to their systems, there is debate over whether resources should be added to the public or private sector. Although Canadians and Americans have each looked to the other for ways to improve their respective health care systems, there exists a substantial amount of conflicting information regarding the relative merits of the two systems. In Canada, the United States is used as a model and as a warning against increasing private sector involvement in financing health care. In the U.S., meanwhile, Canada’s mostly monopsonistic health system is seen by different sides of the ideological spectrum as either a model to be followed or avoided.
Canada and the United States had similar health care systems in the early 1960s, but now have a different mix of funding mechanisms. Canada’s universal single-payer health care system covers about 70% of expenditures, and the Canada Health Act requires that all insured persons be fully insured, without co-payments or user fees, for all medically necessary hospital and physician care. About 91% of hospital expenditures and 99% of total physician services are financed by the public sector. Ophthalmology and dental services account for a lot of the private expenditures in Canada. In the United States, with its mixed public-private system, 16% or 45 million Americans are uninsured at any one time. The U.S. is one of three OECD countries not to have some form of universal health coverage; the other two being Turkey and Mexico.
