The Evolution of Public Health Insurance in Saskatchewan
AbstractThis paper attempts to answer the following questions. Why and did North America's first public health insurance scheme develop in Saskatchewan? What were the unique features of Saskatchewan's economy, geography, history which may helped the development of public health insurance in this province? How did post-war economic and social development in general and the operation of public hospital insurance scheme in conjonction with private Medicare plans in particular impact the subsequent development of Medicare in the province? In order to answer these questions, a review of the history of public health insurance in Canada will be undertaken.
