And I keep bringing anarchy into these posts because you are the poster boy for anarchy.
Ever ask yourself why so many Canadians go to the United States for medical treatment? Could it be because it's faster and better?
Thanks from Sabcat

All the ones that did that I am familiar with did so for conditions that were classed as untreatable and in desperation they went to a US facility that was willing to do useless stuff for a fee.

In some cases a patient that needs a treatment that a local facility can't do will be shipped to the US, paid for by our system, if the transportation is less to a US point than the nearest facility available in Canada. This happens sometimes in the Maritimes since they have a small population and the nearest large center, Montreal is much further than Maine.

And of course there are the rich whiners who can't stand to wait a week or so for non-critical procedures.

Other than that, it is mostly gross hyperbole in what I suspect is US insurance company propaganda.
Thanks from locke23

You know what's even funnier? The number of Americans that go to Canada to buy there medicine and the number that go to Mexico for dental and health care because it is so much cheaper and the care is quite adequate.

Yes, I agree about the medicine/medical costs in general, but if you want the best medical care and the best surgeons you would do well to get treated in the USA. And BTW if you guys like it so much why don't you just move to Canada, eh?
