Federal government's role in Canadian healthcare

History of the Federal Role in Health Care: 

The federal government has a defined constitutional role in health care. Its biggest role is through what is called its “spending power” whereby the federal government sets conditions for the transfer of funds to provincial and territorial governments. This is affected through fiscal transfers, known as the Canada Health Transfer (CHT), and through the Canada Health Act which sets out the principles that provincial health insurance plans must adhere to in order to receive federal transfers without penalty.

Hey Insurance is designed to protect against catastrophic disasters. A basic rule of Life insurance over 50. If you can pay in case of loss or damage without financial difficulties while paying otherwise expect your insurance premium to eventually rise.
