Abstract:

Nightline ran a segment entitled, "World Class Health Care: Is the U.S. Really the Best," that compared the U.S. and Canadian health care systems. Calling it "the paradox of American health care," reporter Dave Marash traveled to Canada, where, he reports, citizens pay half of what Americans pay for cradle to grave coverage. According to Marash, the Canadian focus is "not on individual medical miracles, it's on comprehensive medical coverage. In a concluding interview, Dr. Timothy Johnson told Koppel, "The uninsured not only suffer and die prematurely, but they cost us all a lot of money. And if we could take that money and apply it toward insurance, even though it would cost us some more initially, I think in the long run, we₂d not only save money but we'd save lives."
