Healthcare in Canada:

The health care system in Canada is Universal and primarily free, and the government ensures the quality of the service provided. The Canadian health system does not cover prescription drugs, glasses or dental care and limited coverage is provided for mental health care.

With many other developed countries, Canada is experiencing a cost increase due to a demographic shift towards an older population, with more retirees and fewer working-age people.

Canada’s provincially based Medicare systems are cost-effective because each doctor handles the insurance claim against the provincial insurer at each province. There is no need for the person who accesses health care to be involved in billing and reclaim.
