    As a Canadian, I have some pity for our southern neighbors in this regard. Even my $10,000 Bariatric Surgery was 100% covered under MCP. The drawback, of course, is wait times. All in all it took me about 3 years from the time of application to the surgery itself.

    @Kinnear I don’t understand why people say they don’t want socialized medicine because of wait times. The reason why there aren’t any wait time in the US is because people who cannot afford the surgery are NOT queued. How is that a good thing?

    You don’t have to wait if you can afford it, and if you can’t afford it you just wait until your stomach explodes before you can get treatment.

    I know. I'm by no means implying that capitalistic health care is any sort of improvement. xD I'm one of the people who wouldn't be able to afford doctors if I lived in the US, after all.
