Can the US Learn From Canadian Healthcare?

Can the US Learn From Canadian Healthcare?

Canada spends half as much on healthcare as the US but outcomes are at least as good and lifespans are longer. Americans –including most recently the state of Florida– are keen to import cheaper drugs from our northern neighbor.

Should we import any of their other healthcare ideas while we’re at it?

O Canada, what can we learn from thee?

(01:36) The Canadian healthcare system
(06:10) Quality of service in the U.S. and Canada
(07:23) Drawbacks of the Canadian healthcare system
(10:57) Medical bankruptcy and cost comparison between U.S. and Canada
(13:05) What is not covered under the national healthcare plan in Canada
(15:08) Comparison of U.S. and Canadian healthcare systems
(17:06) Five pillars of the Canadian healthcare system
