“Anything that’s provided in a hospital or by a doctor – if it’s deemed to be medically necessary – is covered, that was the vast majority of health care in the 1960s when these plans were developed, increasingly it leaves out a lot of important stuff.”

Dr. Danielle Martin, family physician and vice-president of Medical Affairs and Health System Solutions at the Women’s College Hospital, joins host Aaron Reynolds to explain how Canada’s health care system works, how it came to be, and what challenges it faces in adapting to changes in modern medicine.
