I can’t tell you how many times people have told me how great Canadian healthcare is: its free (or cheap) and covers everyone. Apparently, however, its not better for everyone. According to this article, wait times are 5.5 weeks for CT scans and 14 weeks for MRI scans. So what do Canadians do when they can’t wait that long? Well one thing they can do is to come to the US.
I’m not saying the US healthcare system is unequivocally better than Canada’s, but the reverse isn’t true either.
