Health Insurance Market

As a Canadian, most of my fellow citizens find the idea of healthcare being a "marketplace" a little bit weird.

Universal medicare became a reality in the province of Saskatchewan in 1962. By 1971, piece by piece it had become a national program.

Now, the move is towards expanding into universal pharmacare, one of the missing pieces of our universal medicare system.

I know that the American system does not make sense to a most people outside the U.S., or frankly to most people inside the U.S. So I thought it was worth a little of my time to lay it out.
