And no, their hospitals are drastically better maintained and operated, I get the feeling you live in a cave. Canadian politicians and citizens don't regularly travel to the US for operations because we have better surgeons and technology.
You probably also believe that Cuba gives great health care to it's citizens.
What I'm saying is EVEN decent health coverage in the states, still doesn't cover as much as it does in Canada.
I have many friends who live in the states. My one good friend just had a baby, and not including her prenatal care, the labour itself cost about $4000. That's a good chunk of money. She has good health care as well, considering she works in the health care system.
As far as hospitals being better maintained. Thats not entirely true. Some are, yes. Some are not.
And a huge reason people go to the states (who have money) is because they can get it now and on their own schedule.
I work in health care, and I've probably been less impressed with Canadian health care system as I go about it, but I've also worked in the states. To say I don't understand health care, is ridiculous. I get the differences, and see the differences. Maybe its simply where I work that is extra ordinary right now, but the care that is given at the hospital I work at, versus the hospital I worked at in the states, is incredibly better run, with incredibly better care (and stats for mortality/morbidity).
