Improving health care through research

What my father told me.

Leave a comment

The meetings of the premiers in Fredericton and a recent piece in Forbes, a leading US financial newspaper reminds me of my father’s frequent statements about medicare. He owned his own business, a bill collection agency and was well right of centre on most things but an avowed left winger on Medicare. He was inordinately proud that people in Canada had medicare because so many families before Medicare used to have to pay for health care in Canada and he learned from his business colleagues that many families in the USA were crippled by medical bills. Forbes restates that one third of Americans struggle to pay medical bills and medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy in the USA.
