He is paying for a private surgery.  Great lesson for our healthcare system.

When it comes to his own health, Canada's socialized system seemed a better alternative to him, even if he had to pay for it.

We used to call that "voting with your feet."

A very liberal way of looking at the facts, but I've come to expect that.

I hope he has to wait 6 months for an MRI and an additional 6 months for the procedure, the same as the rest of us minions do.

From the link...

“This is a private, world renowned hospital separate from any system, and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services.”

And since it claims is already scheduled from the link

Information about the surgery, scheduled for Jan. 21, was revealed in court papers in Paul’s civil lawsuit against neighbor Rene Boucher, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

My guess is cause cash talks, he can write his own schedule.....

He has the money to do this.... But sure is a black eye on US hospitals him doing this.

Maybe they guarantee no scar????????

All those around here that have had local hernia operations are doing and did just fine. ::clappingoverhead::

Looks like Shouldice accepts Canadian/Ontario patients at no cost, and US patients with insurance can be reimbursed by their insurers.

Ontario Patients
Ontario’s Hospital Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers all costs to Ontario residents for public ward rate hospital accommodation and physician services.



Non-Ontario Canadian Resident Patients

Provincial health insurance plans cover all costs to Canadian residents for public ward rate hospital accommodation and physician services. Hospital ward charges are billed directly to respective provincial health ministries, with applicable physician services subject to payment by patients on admission. These fees may be submitted to provincial health plans for reimbursement based on paperwork provided to you on discharge.


US and International Patients

All patients who have submitted their medical questionnaire for assessment and have been qualified for surgery will receive a letter outlining our estimated fees specific to their stated surgical procedure and related hospital stay. Patients with private insurance coverage may be eligible for reimbursement on submission of paperwork provided to you. We do not bill insurance companies on your behalf, however, Shouldice Hospital has no-cost consultants trained to help you with your claim (as foreign insurance coverage is complicated we encourage all patients to pre-approve their coverage prior to admission).

You believe too much of what you hear from Fake News.  This is a renowned facility for hernias.

I was referring to you saying it was a black eye on US hospitals.

You would think that somewhere in the US there would be a facility that specialized in this procedure  ::shrug::

It is, in a way.

People come to the states from all over the world for assorted treatments.

I am not suggesting this is not a fine hospital at all. I am sure it is.

And if he had an issue that could not be treated in the US and he was looking for a Hail Mary treatment in the hopes it might work would be one thing.

But when a sitting US Senator, who has the premier health coverage plan and has the money to even bring Canadian surgeons here to operate, it just does not look good

If it makes you feel better he is going to America's Hat for surgery.
