#Michael Thomas on Jun 19, 2016 :
In Canada options for private medical care are limited because public health insurance is universally available at no direct cost to the patient and public care is generally of high quality in most urban locations for legal Canadian residents (I.e., those legally accepted into the country and who have lived in one province for at least 12 months continuously). By law only certain medical procedures are available through private medicine. In general these are medical services not usually considered to be core medical treatment. While medical care through the public sector is generally of good to excellent quality, wait-times for medical specialists can be long, varying between 2 to 12 months, depending upon the specialty. In addition the patient may have to pay for certain medical and laboratory tests. Access to the same family-physician and to family care can be uneven due to a shortage of general practice doctors in certain geographic areas. Nonetheless in almost all urban locations access to healthcare for walk-ins is widely available to all.
