Growing dissatisfaction continues with Canada's Single Payer Health Care Delivery System [one of three remaining in the modern world]. Interviews with Canadian citizens demonstrate problems that are fueling the demand for faster service and the return of a private alternative to the inefficiency and inadequacy of the current system.See other articles below.
One expressed disappointment when, despite a higher premium for expanded benefits and drug coverage with a growing Co-Pay, he was told there would be a six months wait for an MRI to determine if he had heart damage.
Unable to accept this lengthy period of "not knowing" he arranged for a private facility [beginning to appear on the Canadian horizon] to perform the MRI for an out of pocket cost of 850 dollars.
Another, dissatisfied with the diagnosis and care received from her Primary Care Physician and the Specialist to whom she was referred, sought another opinion which proved their diagnosis to be incorrect.
It is believed, by many Canadians, that their better Physicians are emigrating to the U.S in order to escape the existing system and increase their incomes from medical practice.
