Health care is different in every country. In this episode, Andrew and Kassy talk about the differences between the Canadian and American healthcare and health insurance systems.

Today we are going to talk about a heavy subject, a serious subject. It’s not as lighthearted as our usual episodes. It is health care and health insurance. First, we will compare and contrast the way that health care is covered in North America and then all of our listeners can compare North American healthcare systems to their own countries and see how it adds up.

Fun facts

Koreans go to see their doctor the most of everyone in the world, at an average of 17 times per year. The average Japanese citizen goes 13 times per year. In contrast, Canadians go 7 times per year and Americans go only 4 times per year, on average.
