Canadian health insurance is like any other health insurance in that it has criteria for each kind of surgery. Medicare here is the same. A friend here can't get a knee replacement because her arthritic knee doesn't meet the Medicare qualifications.
Canadians can use their health insurance in other countries so a lot of them come here when there's going to be a long wait there. American health insurance, Medicare included, can only be used here unless you buy trip cancellation insurance that includes medical care. We always buy it.
