    And because you are a private payer, I will charge you three times that what I would have charged your insurer.

    Not entirely true. Many doctors and clinics are foregoing the insurance companies and charging patients directly. The prices are lower because the overhead of billing is lower.

    My Canadian doctor practiced under both systems. His verdict on the Douglas plan: “I can’t see that I practice medicine any differently now that I no longer worry about being paid.”

    @hippogriff I have many friends in Canada and they say exactly the same thing about their doctors and they laugh hysterically when I repeat some of the comments I hear from the right-wingers about the health care system in Canada.

    Redkaycei Repoc: Knowing I was a US citizen, he tried to give me a hard time on the subject – until he found I had more dirt on the AMA than he did – from a sociology prof who just came off sabbatical where he studied that organization and declared it “the most ruthless and corrupt labor union in the country, Hoffa included.” After that, we got along great.

    Dream on. Most Canadians that I speak to can’t believe that America is planning to destroy the best health care system in the world in order to replace it with something that has failed in Canada, Great Britain, Frances, etc., etc.
    But, I know, if Obama likes it, it must be WONDERFUL!
