There’s an interesting article on one former American’s experience in the Canadian Healthcare system: http://www.rhrealitycheck.org/article/2012/07/12/how-i-lost-my-fear-universal-health-care
I’d love to hear the views from those in Canada on this article and the healthcare system in general, given that we’ll be going that way soon in the States. In particular, how are the wait times and how is the quality if you are hospitalized? Also, how much are you paying each month towards healthcare (if you know), and do you see this directly in your paycheck as a separate tax or is it buried in other taxes? Finally, how many people go to the US or elsewhere for care because the wait is too long in Canada?
