Are hospitals, doctors offices and emergency rooms part of the health care system that are already privatized? If so, what other parts of the health care system is already privatized? Thanks for all your help!
About 75 percent of health care services in Canada are delivered privately but funded publicly. The government does not run most of the hospitals and clinics; it only pays them for the services they provide, and sets the fees they can charge.
Some things are not covered by the government system, including prescription drugs and dental care. To cover those needs, most Canadians have supplemental private insurance, which is usually paid for by their employer.
