Breaking News from Our Neighbors to the North

August 7th, 2017 Insurance
CanuckCare© continues to auger in:

“Free” Canadian healthcare is not free, according to a report released Tuesday … a “typical Canadian family of four will pay $ 12,057 for health care in 2017—an increase of nearly 70 percent over the last 20 years.”

So how’s that Single Payer system working out?

Still, that $ 12 large may be a bargain since it buys great care, right?

Turns out, not so much:

[T]here is still a long waiting list for a host of operations, both routine and urgent.”

And over 60,000 Canadians sought actual care outside the country last year.

But “free” (or, you know, not).
