Access and Cost: What the U.S. Health Care System Can Learn from Other Countries


March 11, 2014 – Sally C. Pipes, president and CEO of the Pacific Research Institute, a non-profit think tank based in San Francisco, was invited by the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging, to testify on the issue of “Access and Cost: What the U.S. Health Care System Can Learn from Other Countries.”

Ms. Pipes, a native of Canada, said “The Canadian system is one that would not be suitable for America.  Officials severely restrict patient access to care.  And those restrictions saddle patients and their families with massive monetary and non-monetary costs.  Or to frame this in the terms of the title of this hearing:  If you’re looking for lessons from healthcare systems abroad – Canada shows us exactly what not to do.”

Sally Pipes, president and CEO of the Pacific Research Institute, is an expert on health care issues.  A former Canadian, she authored several books on health care including The Cure for Obamacare and Miracle Cure: How to Solve America’s Health Care Crisis and Why Canada Isn’t the Answer.
