For many people in the United States and Canada, health care costs are a concern. It is common practice for businesses to offer benefits to employees who work full time. Examples include group health benefit plans and insurance benefits for employees. Oftentimes it is only the full time staff members who are eligible to receive company benefits to employees, but some companies also offer benefits for employees who work part time on a more limited basis.
Most small business ownerrs (72 percent) who were surveyed said that they are concerned about the cost of health care plans to their employees. In Canada, the Medicare system is cost effective, and this is at least partially due to the simplicity with which it is run. One of the perks of Canadian health care is that pharmaceutical medications for the elderly are covered by public funds. The conditions and criteria of Canadian health care programs are regulated according to the Canadian Health Care act of 1984. In order to receive federal funding, health insurance programs must conform.
