@Ventronik it varies from province to province but what we have here in ontario is basically universal health insurance. doctors bill the government for services they do. however, public health insurance doesn't cover everything (e. g. prescription medications, dental care, eye care), so people pay out of pocket or get private insurance for it (through their job). or more commonly go without.
