Almost. You got the time frame wrong.

Person calls to make appointment:
We can get you in sometime around February.

February:
You have cancer, we start treatment in 1 week.

1 week later:
Your cancer is terminal, if you had started treatment 10 weeks ago you would have had a chance.
#93 to #90 - lesmiserables (12/20/2012) [-]
I don't know about Canada, but in Denmark (we have nearly the same sort of universal healthcare, including the extreme long waitinglists) we have private hospitals too, where you can go if you have money.

My father was diagnosed with Adisson's disease, and his treatment began the day he was diagnosed.

The only case where you wait an extended period of time in Canada ( > 2 weeks) is when your ailment isn't serious and others need immediate attention more.

he started making meth to provide for his family after he dies because the cancer was determined as terminal regardless of treatment that would make him live longer

Walter White didn't start cooking meth to pay for his health care. He wanted to pay off his mortgage, cover his kids educations, living costs etc. The total came to $737,000 which I'm sure the Canadian government wouldn't give for you just because you were diagnosed with cancer...

I fail to see your logic at all here. That was an unfortunate incident, getting a bad doctor. That has nothing to do with socialized healthcare systems at all. You might as well have paid an American doctor privately, who were just as bad.
User avatar #137 to #136 - wolfypolli ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
This isn't just one incident. And they were multiple doctors that ****** up.
I also need a shoulder operation, the "specialist" in Holland told me to just get a desk job and don't do any heavy lifting. So now I need to get it done in the states.
The dermatologist that knew what he was talking about was the only healthcare specialist in Holland that I've had a positive experience with.
User avatar #138 to #137 - spidahridah (12/20/2012) [-]
Then your conclusion should be that Dutch doctors in that area are bad, not that socialized healthcare is bad.

There's a few real private specialists here that do a decent job. But those are not covered and cost insane amounts of money. The ones that are covered by socialized healthcare are bad. And form what I hear the same problem arises in other countries with socialized healthcare.
You get what you pay for.
User avatar #145 to #144 - spidahridah (12/20/2012) [-]
I'm from Scandinavia, where necessary healthcare is free, and also considered some of the best in the world. I don't think you can ultimately assume that socialized healthcare is terrible everywhere, just because of bad experiences at one place. Or from what you've "heard" for that matter.
User avatar #151 to #145 - asschwitz (12/20/2012) [-]
Most of the time socialized healthcare doesn't work out so well. Doctors all get payed a similar amount, so why should they strive to be better? They can half ass it and make just as much money. That's why many good doctors come to America, because the better you are, the more money you will make.
User avatar #158 to #151 - spidahridah (12/20/2012) [-]
You don't get the purpose of free healthcare. It is to provide vital necessities for people whom are in bad economic situations. If you're not happy with government employed doctors, then go see private doctors, whom you imply are so much better. So what's the problem?
User avatar #164 to #158 - asschwitz (12/20/2012) [-]
I guess you're right. The way I think of it is like this: While the idea looks good on paper, it doesn't work out so well in reality (With the few exceptions of course). It's meant to provide healthcare to people who don't have much money, correct? What good doctor wants to make the same amount of money as a bad doctor when he could work privately and make much more? Thus, the system gets left with bad doctors that can't make it private. Kind've defeating the purpose of having socialized healthcare. I dunno, I guess bad healthcare is better then none when you can't afford it.

It's the same reason why private schools do better than public schools.

Dutch =/= Canadian. The systems are similar, but not identical
User avatar #120 to #117 - wolfypolli ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
From what I hear a lot of these problems are present in Canadian healthcare as well.
User avatar #123 to #120 - lordcuntdestroyer (12/20/2012) [-]
Present, but not abundant. No system is perfect. Basically what happens is if you want better health care in canada, you can pay to get it, but everyone is given basic coverage for most things. Not trying to bash on the US system, just trying to clear things up
User avatar #140 to #123 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
Are you Canadian? If so, where are you getting your healthcare? It's awful where I am.
User avatar #147 to #140 - lordcuntdestroyer (12/20/2012) [-]
Yes I am a Canadian, Nova Scotian to be specific. I am on a family plan, where essentially I go to a specific family doctor and from there she either diagnoses the problem and prescribes medication, or for more serious cases sends me to a professional in whatever practice is required. I go there if I have something like a breathing problem, but for something like a broken bone I just go to the hospital
User avatar #150 to #147 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
Ah, makes sense. I've heard good things about Nova Scotian health care. Ontarian health care sucks. I have a family doctor who barely spends 3 seconds at an appointment. And waiting times for serious things are crazy.
User avatar #154 to #150 - lordcuntdestroyer (12/20/2012) [-]
I hear ya. I had a few doctors like that until I found one that is actually competent
User avatar #133 to #123 - monkee (12/20/2012) [-]
Same as the uk, private healthcare is an optional extra. Our NHS is a source of national pride because it works, although for england and wales they're getting it ripped apart because the Conservative UK government wants to be like America.

You could have gone for private healthcare if you didn't like it.


Doctors make mistakes, i would blame it on the type of healthcare system and more on the people. Besides, it really depends on what doctor you see, specialised doctors will always see "their" illness.
User avatar #112 to #94 - rbpwn (12/20/2012) [-]
Not ALL healthcare providers are alike

Just because you had one bad experience with something you disagree with doesn't mean it's all terrible
User avatar #119 to #112 - wolfypolli ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
In this case it wasn't really about the healthcare providers. It was about the bad quality of doctors.
User avatar #124 to #119 - rbpwn (12/20/2012) [-]
Healthcare Providers meant Doctors in this context, atleast for me


And yes, some doctors are sloppy because the patient themselves aren't paying the money, but they don't represent doctors as a whole

I've only met one terrible doctor, and I got another doctor to fix their mistakes in med prescription the next day
User avatar #135 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
That's not even close to true. Because our health care is "free" (paid for in taxes so people won't notice), people go to the doctor for anything, meaning waiting room times are usually 6 hours. It also means that because doctors don't have competition and get paid regardless, they can be as crappy as they want (I've had many instances of mistreatment or simple refusal of treatment because the doctor "had just met me, how is he supposed to diagnose me?"). Plus, our waiting times are certainly not a week. Especially for something like cancer treatment, waiting times are insane.
My aunt had cancer and had to go to the doctor 4 times before they finally realized it, and by that time it was terminal.
Also, it doesn't cover psychologists, physiotherapy, dentistry, chiropractic, and a lot of other useful things, so we're paying so much in taxes and only getting some of what we really should be getting.
Honestly, I think Canada would be better off with private health care.
User avatar #190 to #135 - trevcars (12/20/2012) [-]
I love how you say it's free sarcastically, as if it would make some sense for it to actually be 100 percent free. Obviously we pay more taxes, but doesn't it make sense to pay your doctor while you're healthy so you don't have to deal with a big bill when you're sick? and to accuse doctors in Canada of being crappy on purpose is a pretty stupid thing to suggest.
User avatar #194 to #190 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
I'm not trying to say doctors actually go into work thinking "I'm going to suck as a doctor today". But since they get paid no matter what, they can be very lazy in their job, which I've seen happen many times.
User avatar #197 to #194 - trevcars (12/20/2012) [-]
Well I believe you should change doctors because that's not something most doctors do. I think Canada has a great healthcare system. Like someone already said, it's not about first come first serve, or how much someone makes, it's about getting you healthy again no matter how much money is in your bank account. And I'm not saying the US has a bad system, because honestly I don't know much about it.
User avatar #199 to #197 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
I've tried, but I find doctors are like this more often than not, not just with me. I've noticed that it differs province to province though. I'm not trying to say the USA has a perfect system either, I just think there needs to be some sort of compromise system, because I'm not seeing either the Canadian or USA system working well enough.
User avatar #201 to #199 - trevcars (12/20/2012) [-]
I understand.
User avatar #204 to #201 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
I appreciate your understanding and ability to have a civil discussion despite differing opinions.
User avatar #148 to #135 - chezburgadominator (12/20/2012) [-]
Wow, this was a pretty logical statement. You're saying that just because Canada has free health care it doesn't automatically mean it's better than other health care, right? Atleast you aren't ultimately deeming Canada>Every Other health care

My mom had breast cancer and got in to see the doctor instantly. Our healthcare system is top notch. Canada's rate of mistreatment is no higher than the USAs. I've lived in both Canada and the USA and I can tell you both countries have great healthcare (Which is why our life expectancy is so high) but the only one that gave my family a $40,000 bill was the US.

So I hope you think about both sides before claiming Canada should have privatized healthcare, especially when many people in the US can't even afford the insurance to have it.
User avatar #161 to #156 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (12/20/2012) [-]
No, they both gave you the bill. One you paid up front and one you paid in taxes.
User avatar #162 to #161 - Envy (12/20/2012) [-]
I'd rather pay a marginal amount in taxes than a $40,000 bill on TOP of other federal taxes.

Recently Canada has been on the ball with medicines.
**** , they practically found a cure for HIV and Cancer in the past few years.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dichloroacetic_acid
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAV001
User avatar #57 to #54 - unhappyspanners (12/20/2012) [-]
Where does it say Canadian scientists found DCA?
User avatar #73 to #57 - Nameloc (12/20/2012) [-]
The University of Alberta is testing DCA for potential uses in curing cancer...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Alberta

"Reports in the lay press after the 2007 University of Alberta announcement claim that dichloroacetate "has actually been used safely in humans for decades",[35] DCA is generally well tolerated, even in children.[36] Short-term, infused, bolus doses of DCA at 50 mg/kg/day have been well tolerated.[37]"
#56 to #54 - ARRRGGGG (12/20/2012) [-]
"Although preliminary studies have shown DCA can slow the growth of certain tumors in animal studies and in vitro studies, there is no evidence to support the use of DCA as a cancer treatment in humans"

That's not a cure.

SAV001 shows promise, but is still undergoing clinical trial. AKA, they don't even know if it works yet.

It's a really big stretch to say Canada found cures for cancer and AIDS.
User avatar #72 to #56 - Nameloc (12/20/2012) [-]
That's some ******** people put up on there....

Now if you scroll down to look and see:
"These results received extensive media attention, beginning with an article in New Scientist titled "Cheap, ‘safe’ drug kills most cancers".[12] Subsequently, the American Cancer Society and other medical organizations have received a large volume of public interest and questions regarding DCA.[14] Clinical trials in humans with cancer have not been conducted in the USA and are not yet final in Canada, emphasizing the need for caution in interpreting the preliminary results.[14][15]"

It's still a work in progress, although it's a lot further in development then SAV001.

Just curious, do you's get free education as well?
I was looking at Canada for Job Prospectus, but to work in Canada I'd have to live in Canada my two questions were is the health care free, and If i end up with a kid (Scottish accents make the ladies quiver at the knees) am I going to have to dish out thousands of dollars to pay for their education.
#33 to #17 - John Cena (12/20/2012) [-]
Health care is only free if you are a Canadian citizen. If you're not, you gotta pay.
#110 to #33 - John Cena (12/20/2012) [-]
Unless if it's a life and death situation which occurred on Canadian soil. For example getting hit by a moose.

Ah right, well that kinds sucks. Looks like Norway is my best option then (For Engineering, Healthcare and Education) I'd stay in the UK but the UK is falling apart, it won't be long until the tories have their way and we'll have to pay for Uni in Scotland as well (Unless it becomes independent).
#68 to #44 - John Cena (12/20/2012) [-]
Tories wont win the next election. I have never known a prime minister with a bigger reputation as a twat.
User avatar #71 to #68 - odonnell (12/20/2012) [-]
Well, everyone (I know) in Scotland didn't vote for the Tories, so we never expected them to win in the first place. But who cares, we're just wee drunks, no-one counts our votes.

Its not just the Tories though, the place is just a **** hole in general. Even if Scotland became independent we'd still be hit with the share of debt, still have little jobs, and immigrants taking what jobs are left, while anyone that does have a job is getting their wages taken away to pay for the immigrants.

We should do what Canada has done and make anyone that isn't a citizen pay for healthcare (Well those that dont contribute tax, it sucks that people should pay the same amount of tax as everyone else in Canada if they don't get the same treatments). Make them remove their burka's as well, If im not allowed to wear a hood into a bank (With my face still showing) what makes it acceptable that they should walk in with the hood up and the scarf covering the face. I'm not racist, I just think we should have equality, if we get hit with **** so can they, they're the ones that decided to come here out of the 195 other countries in the world
User avatar #7 to #4 - lumpymandude (12/20/2012) [-]
Yes, because the docotors all work for free right. oh wait. no. thats wrong. You are paying them anyways except the people that don't use them have to pay as much as the people that use them regularly. Spreading of wealth is what it is
User avatar #10 to #7 - QCGunslinger (12/20/2012) [-]
Yes, exactly. So if you get cancer, no matter if you're a single mom with two kids who's scapping to get by or mother ******* Canadian Bill Gates, you have access to treatment. It's sad if you don't get cancer, but eh, I don't, for one, love to gamble with my health.

Anyways, I feel like that will start an internet arguement. Feel free to answer me, but I will stop here from now. Enjoy the rest of your day and may the Force be with you.

well considering that our taxes are equivalent, or less than America's, im not too worried. Also our doctors aren't making about 200k a year, they make about half of that. And if you say that we underpay our doctors, im pretty sure most people can live comfortably off of 100k.
#97 to #65 - randomprick (12/20/2012) [-]
100k is huge for living. In Spain we're lucky if we can reach 60k

User avatar #92 - I Am Monkey (12/20/2012) [-]
In the show he did have health coverage, but he wanted to increase his chances of living by going to an expensive doctor that wasn't on the plan. In Canada they have the same thing, you can go to a private surgeon, skip the waiting list and probably get better service, but it will cost you.
#60 - erofleur (12/20/2012) [-]
I don't know about the next week part, my grandmother has cancer and it took her a couple months on a waiting list to start receiving treatment and meds. I guess it differs where you live. She lives around Calgary.
