A study by Steven Katz, Diana Verilli, and Morris Barer in Health Affairs examining the Ontario Health Insurance Plan from 1987 to 1995 found “evidence of cross-border care seeking for cardiovascular and orthopedic procedures, mental health services, and cancer treatments".


Increasingly, sophisticated Canadian patients are seeking advanced health care in the United States and progressive American medical groups are catering to the needs of these special patients. Dr. Karamanoukian, founder and CEO of states that "patients want the freedom to choose where to go and don't have the luxury of waiting 6 months, 1 year or 2 years to have much needed orthopedic procedures, cataract surgery, vein procedures, heart valve replacement and so on".


"And wait patients must. A hospital survey of five countries (United States, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Australia), conducted by Robert Blendon and colleagues in Health Affairs found that “waits of six months or more for elective surgeries were reported to occur ‘very often’ or ‘often’ by 26–57 percent of executives in the four non-U.S. countries; only 1 percent of U.S. hospitals reported this. Half of all Canadian hospitals reported an average waiting time of over six months for a 65-year-old male requiring a routine hip replacement; no American hospital administrators reported waits this long" (source - verbatim - The Foundry).
