Local Canadian Healthcare System
The local healthcare system is funded by
the federal government with majority of
the medical services managed from the
private medical sector.
Doctors who are providing
consultation will charge a fee that has
been pre-agreed with the national
medical Association in the year before.
This in turn would ensure that all
doctors have to conform to these fees
structure within the year and they are
not able to overcharge.
Naturally, Medicare constitutes as the
biggest healthcare program in the country.
The program itself takes on a tier
approach when it comes to medical
administration and following is just an
example: while a federal agency will be
directly responsible for health care
administration for the military units, the
mounted police (which also benefit from the
same program) seek medical attentions from
the private practices.
One in every three Canadians has some form
of private medical insurance coverage and
the general trend is on the way up as more
and more people begin to appreciate private
healthcare being the complimentary option to
the national Medicare.
Apart from individual coverage,
almost 60% of Canadians are also covered by
private healthcare insurance indirectly,
most of whom through their individual
doctors do not operate on annual salary
scheme but their incomes are dependent on
fees derived from individual medical
