ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need to increase revenues to fund medical care system in Canada, which was discussed by Mark Stabile during the Canadian Medical Association (CMA)'s 144th annual general meeting in Newfoundland and Labrador on August 21, 2011. Stabile notes the need of more revenues as savings coming from efficiency are insufficient. He adds that revenue generating reforms can be created in four areas including tax increases, cost-sharing with patients and private financing.
