Presentation Title: Canada Health Act: Defender of Medicare or Barrier to Reform and Innovation?

The Canada Health Act has been called both the defender of universal access health care and a barrier to health policy reform and innovation. Which is true? And how does the Canada Health Act accomplish this? Join Nadeem Esmail in a discussion about the Canada Health Act’s role in shaping provincial health care policy. Learn which policies are permissible under the letter of the Canada Health Act and which ones would run afoul of its myriad rules, regulations, and interpretations.
