So ?
It's still a government funded health system, and these private Corps have to work under contracts in which the amounts they can charge the government are strictly controlled.

Price control and 2.45 billion in debt for one agency. Overall wait time for service increase.

Is this the model the US should seek? This model of having our grandchildren pay long after we are dead needs to stop and this statement includes the US.

It is not government funded, it is taxpayer funded, correct?
Thanks from Sabcat

Jesus, it must be all those drugs! You think the Prime Minister was consulted before I had a cancer operation? For God's sake grow up!

He did not say private consult. I took it as making policy and agree.

You might have a point, the government is trying to kick 24 million out of the system as we speak.
No Health Care for YOU...!
