Penalties reduce federal transfer payments to B.C. by $500,000
The Vancouver Sun
The federal government deducted a little more than $500,000 from transfer payments to B.C. over the last two years as a penalty for extra-billing charges patients paid at private or public hospitals and diagnostic clinics. User fees for medically necessary, government-insured treatments contravene the federal Canada Health Act and provincial statutes. To discourage the extra charges, the federal government requires provinces to submit statements of the fees paid by patients.

Until now, some have stayed in acute care hospital beds while waiting for a long-term care bed in Regina. However, for the past dozen years rural patients awaiting long-term care could be placed up to 150 kilometres from their home hospital.

More health competition means more choice and more coverage
The Globe and Mail
Canada's provincial governments should change the rules that currently limit the right of doctors and hospitals to treat patients privately, and that prevent private insurers from offering plans that pay for physician and hospital services outside provincial insurance plans. Private payment of health-care costs in Canada today is mostly for things like prescription drugs, vision care, long-term care outside hospitals and dentistry, while provincial governments pay for virtually all hospital and physician services.
