There is no reason for our nation to NOT at least be on that list. We can do much better. I doubt allowing for-profit healthcare companies even wider latitude is the answer.

Yeah, you guys charge just stupid amounts of money for anything needing a doctor. It's insane. I'd hate to get sick down there without any insurance. Of course, you're all quite litigious too, so maybe the doctors need to charge that amount just to make a reasonable net salary after all that. Not sure.

But take away some of the litigious system, pare back the amount doctors are paid for each procedure, and maybe it would be better. But you definitely don't need to give them greater latitude as you noted.

Canada's system is broken though - I can't imagine it will last more than 25 years. Right now, speaking from someone who knows a lot of doctors, they're all just basically patching the holes right now to make it work. I bet we'll see something of a two-tiered system in the future.
