I'm a USA insurance broker. This Summer, I set up a health insurance
policy for a family that moved here from Toronto, Canada. The wife
still has cancer because the waiting list for the few treatment centers is
so long that she could only get chemo every 6 weeks, even though
she's supposed to go every 2 weeks! Plus, the poor thing has no idea
if the chemotherapy was working at all, because their state medical system
"forgot" to schedule in a this testing with her treatment regime.
Her husband became so frightened for her life that he moved his business
to the USA so she could get good health insurance. In 3 months, Carrie
will be past the 6 month waiting period for the group health plan I set up
for them and she'll be able to get up to $7 million dollars of treatment
at any medical facility she chooses, at any time. Talk about a family that
is thankful to be in the USA!
Our system isn't perfect, but you'd be hard pressed to find very many
people leaving the USA and moving to a socialist country just to get their
health coverage. The reverse, however, happens often.
