I don't know if it is the way to go or not? Seems there is a lot of abuse of the system but you do get fairly good health care without breaking the bank.
I'm old enough to remember the system that was in place before the present one came into being. I don't think it was all that bad? My Dad had a policy through a grain growers co-op that was reasonable. If you went and saw the doctor you paid at the desk in the clinic. If you were in the hospital you paid a small deductable and the insurance picked up the rest.
I doubt you would find many people up here who think private health care would be the way to go.
