Description

Canadians are deeply worried about wait times for health care. Entrepreneurial doctors and private clinics are bringing Charter challenges to existing laws restrictive of a two-tier system. They argue that Canada is an outlier among developed countries in limiting options to jump the queue. 

This book explores whether a two-tier model is a solution. 

In Is Two-Tier Health Care the Future?, leading researchers explore the public and private mix in Canada, Australia, Germany, France, and Ireland. They explain the history and complexity of interactions between public and private funding of health care and the many regulations and policies found in different countries used to both inhibit and sometimes to encourage two-tier care, such as tax breaks. 

This edited collection provides critical evidence on the different approaches to regulating two-tier care across different countries and what could work in Canada. 

This book is published in English.

Editorial Reviews

divsegoe ui",="" system-ui,="" "apple="" color="" emoji",="" "segoe="" ui="" sans-serif;="" 14px;"="">Is Two-Tier Health Care the Future?, is the best book in years about the past, present and future of Canadian Medicare. The book, with its compelling introduction by Colleen Flood and Bryan Thomas, is well written and well edited. Unlike many edited volumes, authors have written coherent, linked, chapters on the most controversial topics in Canadian medical care. These prominently include the history of intense disputes over private and public finance of hospitals and physicians, and address how and why private finance of Canadian medical care has always been and will continue to be so controversial. The most unusual feature of Canadian health care policy—illuminated by chapters on medical finance in other rich democracies—is how judicial decision making in Medicare’s past and present has become dominated by constitutional law and disputes about how much market allocation is tolerable in an egalitarian program like Canada’s Medicare. How that came to be over the past few decades and what the BC Cambie Clinic case means for the future is what this serious work of scholarship provides.

— Theodore R. Marmor
