In Canada, the government does NOT run Healthcare, it just funds it via taxation. You have to remember that the TOTAL amount of dollars spent on healthcare , whether by taxation, insurance premiums, deductibles or copays is about twice as high in the US. The reason being is partly because of the incredibly high malpractice costs in the US, but mainly because of paying all the healthcare dollars through the insurance industry with all its costs and overheads.


Sometimes I sit and think deep thoughts. other times, I just sit!

Great information that we are going to share with friends here. Thanks!!!

We feel like you do about Medicare. We, and likely you too, qualify for Medicare part A. So what?

I can't seem to get your charts slider to let me see the other options. Is it just me?


Thanks for sharing this info.

We have no intentions of returning to the US, we have nothing there,

We checked the cost of the insurance here, about $500 USD each a year. Considering that is for the public hospital and our costs were for private, we are very comfortable staying uninsured.

We were uninsured in the US from 1984 until we left in 2017.

We have been in Mexico for 13 years and I have been in the emergency room once and my then teenage daughter was in emergency overnight then last year I fell off s ladder and had to be rushed to a clinic for stitches in my head plus the therapy for my injured back from the fall...In all of this I still have not spent more than 500 usd.
