Canadian Universal Health Care System and Private Health Insurance

Within Canada, its eligible citizens and residents have a government funded universal health insurance system. This system is funded through a tax supported system with healthcare costs regulated. The private healthcare insurance industry can provide services that are not currently covered under the public insurance scheme or province insurance plan. These non covered services may include private hospital beds, prescription eyeglasses, dental care, certain prescription drugs and others.
