    In my other comment here I view (in my vision/world) them as free primary/preventive care. I just don't see how you can do away with the need for coverage if a person has a heart attack, needs surgery, or is about to give birth.

    But I feel like this could be a start. I have joked (and I don't think it is funny) I am pretty sure I could run a health care plan, make money, and not gouge people if you gave me time. Cause I would focus on people not getting sick in the first place, which costs a heck of a lot less then trying to treat people after they are already really sick.

      I was paid to post this comment by my cat, but he's a deadbeat.

      •  No, the clinics refer to specialists (0+ / 0-)

        So they mostly cater to the very simple problems. They are mostly staffed by PAs. (not doctors)

        Everybody is automatically enrolled in Canada's health plan. You don't "miss a payment" because THERE ARE NO BILLS.
