You're not very bright, are you?HMMmmmmm... Ontario, Canada--Canadian National Health Care, OMG!!! Socialism!!!!!!! Socialized Medicine!!!! OMG!
OMG! These Poor Canadians Have to Pay from $60.00 a Year to $900.00 a Year for Health Insurance with NO Deductibles, and NO Co-Payments.... Canadians Go to ANY Doctor they wish to go to....
Oh Dear.... they don't even have HMO's and PPO's telling them which Doctors they can and cannot see... They don't even get to wait for service unless it is for an Elective Surgery or they are trying to see a Popular Doctor who is not taking new patients..
Zounds,,,No wonder the Republicans told us it was awful.... Good old Republicans saved us from a fate worse than death,,,,,
While Ontario receives transfer payments from the federal government of Canada to partially fund health care, OHIP is also supported by general provincial tax revenues and premiums (taxes) paid by employers and individuals. Employers are charged a payroll health care tax (with an exemption for small businesses) and residents of the province pay a health premium (introduced in 2004) as part of their income taxes.
The Ontario Health Premium (OHP) is a component of Ontario's Personal Income Tax system. The OHP is based on taxable income for a taxation year. As of May 2010, an Ontario resident with taxable income (i.e. income after subtracting allowable deductions) of $21,000 pays $60 per year. With taxable income of $22,000, the premium doubles to $120; with taxable income of $23,000, the premium is $180; with taxable income of $24,000, the premium is $240. The premium increases at a decreasing rate thereafter for taxable incomes up to $200,600, at which point the maximum premium of $900 is reached.
