one like Canada where everyone is paid for through their tax dollars? Or one like the American system where the insurance companies charge you ridiculous amounts of money and can deny you due to a pre-existing illness?
I want out of America so bad. I'm overweight, and insurance companies think "overweight" automatically means "guaranteed future illness," so I'm likely to be denied when I finally try to get my own insurance, even though I go to the doctor regularly and everything in my body is running relatively smoothly.
I hate that health is all about money here and people die JUST because they can't afford the price of health care. If you have freakin' cancer, the last thing you should be worrying about is how to pay for your next round of chemo.
canada. you can see a doctor anytime you want to. they have clsc at every metro station. I had an emergency when I was there by myself when I was 14. I just went right in. I was taken care of withut using the emergency room- which would have interfered with some elses care. I was able to get blood work done. no money. no parents. no credit card. it was a life saver.
Canada's. Americas healthcare system is dog sh*t. Here the only way you can get good health care at an affordable cost is if you are healthy. Where does that leave the others? People that have health problems or where born with an illness? Canada's it don't really matter you get the same health care as others you just have to pay more tax (which apparantly is something people in this country can't comprehend spending a little more to help others).
America, the Canadian system punishes the healthy and rewards those who don't take care of themselves. Actually the American system is pretty jacked up too, there are a lot of things that need to be changed.
