Canadians Shopping in U.S. for Bargain Medical Prices

Canadians buy U.S. health care as weak economy pushes down prices – The Globe and Mail.

Wait times and availability of  health care has long been sending  Canadians southward to the U.S. for care.   This migration is increasing due to economic downturns and new bargain rates for medical procedures.  U.S.  health facilities are actually negotiating  with Canadian health care brokers and matching prices.

This state of affairs has sent people of more moderate means into the U.S. health care market for such things as joint replacements and cardiac procedures.

Let’s hope that a private system can remain in place for those who think their health is worth the money.
