Yanks to the Rescue

With "free" access to health care, why would anyone need to come to the U.S.?

While recognizing that many Canadians believe that we have one of the best health care systems in the world, the founders of Timely Medical Alternatives Inc. also recognize that there are some 875,000 Canadians currently on the waiting list for referrals to specialists or for medical procedures.
Our organization was formed in 2003 to help Canadians from coast to coast, to "Leave the queue" and take personal responsibility for their own private medical services.

An organization to help Canadians with the ability to pay to take charge of their health care.

Interesting concept.

We have helped our clients to regain their mobility, to get relief from chronic pain, to get diagnoses of illnesses and we have, in some cases, helped to save the lives of a number of our fellow Canadians.

Saving lives.

Isn't that what health care is all about?

Few Canadians realize that:

• Surgical waitlists in the US are measured in weeks instead of the years which Canadians are often forced to wait.

• Cutting edge medical procedures and pharmaceuticals which are unavailable in Canada, are readily accessed by American patients.
• People under 65, who are without resources, are guaranteed by federal law, access to emergency care for serious medical conditions.
• Because their access to operating room time is not rationed, an American surgeon 10 years out of medical school, will (all else being equal) be more skilled at his craft than his Canadian counterparts. If a Canadian orthopedic surgeon operates 6 hours per week, he will never achieve the level of practical experience of his America counterpart who might operate 24 hours per week.

No waitlists, cutting edge medical procedures & pharmaceuticals, no rationing of operating room time.

Probably just me, but isn't this a BETTER system?

We believe it is time that Canadians realize that the rest of the developed world is NOT out of step. It is Canada which is out of step with the rest of the world.

And this is interesting as well.

If Canadians choose to go outside the system and pay for care, they can go here and find private fee for service clinics in Canada and the U.S.

With all that "free" care, why would anyone want to come here?

Was Michael Moore wrong?
