The Canadian and American Health Care Systems

Not all Health Care Systems are the same. Some are free for their country and most are very expensive. Having compared the Health Care Systems in Canada and the United States, Canada has the best Health Care system. It is a government funded Health Care system. No matter who you are or where you live in Canada, superior quality health care is guaranteed. Basically, if you want medical attention, a doctor or some other health care professional is only a phone call away. One doesn 't have to be an elite member of society or have millions of dollars to have quick access to a hospital. To begin with, I believe Canada has one of the best health care systems in the world. “In Canada today, all forms of health promotion and prevention and health maintenance is free. Whether it is a simple visit to the doctor for the common cold, giving birth or having a complex open heart surgery, it is free (Lumsden).” Not like other nations such as where I live in the United States. Canadians don 't have to worry about high insurance premiums based on their level of wellness and health. They also don’t have to worry about expensive hospital visits and stays and they don’t have to ignore a sickness because they can’t afford to go to the hospital. Health care is free in Canada and that 's the way it should be all over the world. All people should have the right to good, quality, public funded healthcare in their own country, not just Canada. No matter where someone lives, where they work or their status in society, nobody should be denied this basic right to a better healthier and longer life.

All nations around the world should look up to Canadians health care system. There are other reasons why I believe Canada has a good health care system and that is because their hospitals, doctors or nurses are all quite
