Abstract

In Canada, a health care system has developed that is both responsive to the health needs of the Canadian people and has shown financial stability over the past decade. The Canadians attribute their success in maintaining stable health care costs to regulation of physician fee levels and hospital services. Yet even though there exists regulation in the Canadian health care system, the effect of this government intervention has not resulted in rationing of health care. This suggests Americans should examine closely this alternative model of a health care system.
