Australia does not have the full state health care of some European nations nor do we have the fully privatised US model. Medicare guarantees all Australians basic hospital care, what is termed elective surgery does have long waiting lists under Medicare and those of us with private insurance have the opportunity the go to private hospitals and have those sorts of procedures done without the waiting. I agree Medicare works well, our health care is good quality and does not put the same burden on the budget that Europe has nor do we see people denied treatment because they do not have insurance like the US
