Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Market-driven healthcare reform is now a reality. As the federal government grapples to control open-ended entitlements, Medicare and Medicaid, and as the private and public sectors continue to wrestle with the costs of healthcare coverage and delivery, it is useful to review the Canadian healthcare system. Canada's system underwent considerable analysis during the Clinton administration's attempt at healthcare reform. Then, as now, the system was heralded or reviled by disparate interests. Canada's system deserved another look in light of current U.S. interest in healthcare reform.
