Controlling Health Expenditures: The Canadian Reality
Evans, Robert G.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1989 Mar 2; 320(9): 571-577.
A Canadian-authored comparison of the American and Canadian systems of funding expenditures for health care is presented. The Canadian approach has combined cost control with universal, comprehensive coverage to constrain overall health expenditures to a stable share of national income and to eliminate the burdens of uncompensated care, catastrophic illness, and uninsured populations, thereby solving some of the more intractable problems facing the United States. Political processes in Canada that focus the conflict between providers and payers may intrude less on the professional autonomy of the individual physician than is the case in the United States.
