in BC, the health program isn't "free". Everyone pays a fee of 57 bucks a month for health insurance. Babies, kids, adults, seniors, all the same fee. I pay $1368 per year for me and Missus Riprock.That's just about the same thing as free. We paid $1377 per month for our private insurance premiums, plus $1500 deductibles and 30% co-pays. But we don't have a 15% sales tax either.Medicare has already cut my costs to less than half the premium, very small deductibles and little or no copays. And throws in dirt-cheap drug coverage. Once DW's on Medicare next year, we'll save enough on health-care expenses to take a nice overseas trip each year. And still no 15% sales tax.Do you know if those private clinics in B.C. you linked to accept American patients? We might be needing access once ObamaCare is implemented. DW still has a Canadian passport but I don't. --fleg
