    I have seen a few from overseas and Canada. I am not sure the exact number, though.

    Re: UHC vs Privatized Care

    I used to oppose a single-payor system, but the more I learned about it through the health care debate the more it just made sense to me, even as the compromise moved further and further away from it.

    I wouldn't want a single provider system, where the government ran all health care, though.

    Re: UHC vs Privatized Care

    The poll needs an "I live in a country with UHC and a private sector" option, because they're not mutually exclusive. I would never personally choose private care because UHC meets all my needs, but the option is there if I wanted it. The basic difference in the UK was in hotel services and waits for elective care. The waits are likely to grow again under the Tory plans.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, but I just mean a country has UHC (and any other options) and wants to switch to privatized only.

    Now, to clarify my answer. I want UHC. But this does not mean an end to privatized care. The system here would and should be a least two tearied, in which those who cna afford more can buy more.

    And I want it to be a specific system, a single payer system, with the second teir as I said.

    Re: UHC vs Privatized Care

    I recently saw a news story about how medical treatments and surgeries are being outsourced to other countries where health care was so much more affordable.
    More and more people are being forced to travel outside the US for affordable health care.

    Why are we the last industrialized country on the planet to upgrade to UHC?

    I'm an American living in Canada and their system is superior to ours. They might have more wait times for non-serious problems but your life won't be financially ruined because of a health complication. Our system needs to change.
