For the most part the individual was compelled to rely on his own resources and those of his family group, and hospitals were administered and financed by private charities and religious organizations. The only specific references to health in the distribution of legislative powers under the British North America Act allocate to Parliament jurisdiction over quarantine and the establishment and maintenance of marine hospitals, and to provincial legislatures jurisdiction over the establishment, maintenance and management of hospitals, asylums, charities and charitable institutions in and for the province, other than marine hospitals. In 1867 this latter reference probably was meant to cover most health care services. Since the provinces were assigned jurisdiction over generally all matters of a merely local or private nature in the province, it is probable that this power was deemed to cover health care, while the provincial power over municipal institutions provided a convenient means for dealing with such matters. Thus provision of health care services has been traditionally acknowledged as primarily a provincial responsibility. But a measure of responsibility in health matters has been expressed over the years in many federal programs and policies.  Federal-provincial co-operation Since the federal and provincial governments share responsibility for dealing with health matters, a formal structure has been established for federal-provincial co-operation. It comprises the following: conference of ministers of health; conference of deputy ministers of health; federal-provincial advisory committees on institutional care services, community care services, health promotion and lifestyle, environmental and occupational health and health manpower. The conferences of ministers and deputy ministers of health involve matters of promotion, protection, maintenance and restoration of the health of the Canadian people. Normally, the conference of ministers meets annually and the conference of deputy ministers twice a year. The five advisory committees facilitate the work of the ministers and deputy ministers, and assist them in achieving objectives, identifying major issues and solving problems. They may set up groups to deal with particular subjects requiring more detailed study.  1.

It is responsible for the overall promotion, preservation, and restoration of the health of Canadians, and for their social security and social welfare. The department acts in conjunction with other federal agencies and with provincial and local services. The provincial governments actually administer health services. Although the patterns of health services are similar, their organization and administration vary from province to province. Other federal agencies which carry out specialized health functions include, for example, the health division. Statistics Canada, which gathers health and vital statistics, the veterans affairs department, which administers hospitals and health services for war veterans, and the agriculture department, which has certain responsibilities for health aspects of food production. Branches of the national health and welfare department are responsible for health protection, medical services, health programs, long-range health planning and fitness and amateur sport. The Medical Research Council supports research in health sciences in Canadian universities and affiliated institutions. In the health and welfare department, an integrated program protects the public against unsafe foods, drugs, cosmetics, medical and radiation-emitting devices, harmful microbial agents and technological and social environments, environmental pollutants and contaminants of all kinds, and fraudulent drugs and devices. Medical services include health care and public health services for registered Indians, Inuit and all residents of the Yukon Territory and Northwest Territories, as well as quarantine and regulatory services, immigration medical services, public service health, a national prosthetics service, civil aviation medicine, disability assessment and emergency health and welfare services. Long-range health planning assesses the orientation of health services and the organization of resources. The fitness and amateur sport branch encourages excellence in Canada's athletes and participation of all Canadians in activities oriented toward fitness and recreation. The health programs branch administers federal aspects of Canada's two major health programs, hospital and medical insurance; supports health care delivery system and resource development; undertakes health promotion; and both supports and conducts research.  5.4.1  Health care Medical care. Before the establishment of government-administered medical insurance, voluntary prepayment arrangements to cover the cost of physicians' services had developed in public and private sectors. By the end of 1968, basic medical or surgical coverage, or both, were being provided to about 17.2 million Canadians, 82% of the population. Voluntary plans in the private sector covered about 10.9 million, or 52%, and public plans covered 6.3 million, or 30%. By 1972 all 10 provinces and the two territories had met the criteria stipulated under the Medical Care Act as conditions for federal cost-sharing, and virtually the entire eligible population was insured for all required medical services plus a limited range of oral surgery. Members of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and inmates of federal penitentiaries whose medical care requirements are met under alternative provisions are excluded. Services by physicians that are not medically required, such as examinations for life insurance, services covered under other legislation, such as immunization where available through organized public health services, and services to treat work-related conditions already covered by worker compensation legislation are not covered. Comprehensive coverage must be provided for all medically required services rendered by a physician or surgeon. There can be no dollar limit or exclusion except on the ground that the service was not medically required. The federal program includes not only those services that have been traditionally covered as benefits by the health insurance industry, but also those preventive and curative services that have been traditionally covered through the public sector in each province, such as medical care of  142 Health patients in mental and tuberculosis hospitals and services of a preventive nature provided to individuals by physicians in public health agencies. The plan must be universally available to all eligible residents and cover al least 95% of the total eligible provincial population (in fact the plans cover over 99%). A uniform terms and conditions clause is intended to ensure that all residents have access to coverage and to prevent discrimination in premiums because of previous health, age, non-membership in a group, or other considerations. If a premium system of financing is.selected, subsidization in whole or in part for low-income groups is permitted. It has been left to the individual province to determine whether its residents should be insured on a voluntary or compulsory basis. Utilization charges at the time of service are not precluded by the federal legislation if they do not impede, either by their amount or by the manner of their applications, reasonable access to necessary medical care, particularly for low-income groups. The plan must provide portability of benefit coverage when the insured resident is temporarily absent from the province and when moving residence to another participating province. The provincial medical care insurance plan must be administered on a non-profit basis by a public authority that is accountable to the provincial government for its financial transactions. It is permissible for provinces to assign certain administrative functions to private agencies. These criteria leave flexibility with each province to determine its own administrative arrangements for the operation of its medical care insurance plan and to choose the way in which it will be financed, that is, through premiums, sales tax, other provincial revenues, or by combination of methods. Federal financial contributions to the provinces prior to April 1977 were based on half of the national per capita cost of the insured services of the national program, excluding administration, multiplied by the number of insured persons in each province. A 1976 amendment to the act established a ceiling of 113% on the per capita increase of the federal contribution for the fiscal year 1976-77. Hospital insurance. The Hospital Insurance and Diagnostic Services Act which took effect on July 1, 1958, was designed to make available to all eligible residents a wide range of hospital and diagnostic services, subject to medical necessity, at little or no direct cost to the patient, thereby removing financial barriers to adequate care which existed for many residents prior to the introduction of the program. Under the act, contributions by the federal government are authorized for programs administered by the provinces providing hospital insurance and laboratory and other services in aid of diagnosis. The program incorporates five general principles: comprehensiveness of services; universal availability of coverage to all eligible residents; no barriers to reasonable accessibility of care; portability of benefits; and public administration of the provincial programs. Facilities covered under the program include general, rehabilitation (convalescent), and extended care (chronic) hospitals together with specialized hospitals such as those providing maternity or pediatric care. The program may also cover diagnostic services in non-hospital facilities. Specifically excluded under the program are tuberculosis hospitals and sanatoria, hospitals or institutions for the mentally ill, and nursing homes, homes for the aged, infirmaries or other institutions whose purpose is to provide custodial care. In development of hospital insurance legislation, existing traditions were maintained as far as possible. The pattern of hospital ownership and operation that existed before the act came into force was retained and provincial autonomy was not infringed. Consequently, even 20 years later, almost 90% of the beds covered by hospital insurance are located in facilities owned and operated by voluntary bodies and municipalities. The policy of provincial autonomy allows each province to decide on methods of administration and of financing its share of program costs while still ensuring a basic uniformity of coverage throughout the country. All provinces and territories have participated since 1961. Details of services provided are in Section 5.5.1, Provincial health insurance plans.  201  143 202  Canada Year Book 1978-79  Insured in-patient services must include accommodation, meals, necessary nursing service, diagnostic procedures, most pharmaceuticals, the use of operating rooms, case rooms, anesthesia facilities, and radiotherapy and physiotherapy if available. Similar out-patient services may be included in provincial plans and authorized for contribution under the act. All provinces include a fairly comprehensive range of out-patient services. The individual may select the hospital in which he will be treated provided his physician has admitting privileges, and the only limit to the duration of insured services is the extent of medical necessity. Moreover, during a temporary absence, coverage is portable anywhere in the world for in-patient services, and in the case of most provinces for out-patient services also, although such benefits are subject to provincially regulated maxima for rates of payment and length of hospital stay as set out in the summary of provincial programs. Provinces may include additional benefits in their plans without affecting the federal-provincial agreements. Some provincial hospital plans provide additional services such as nursing home care and these are also mentioned in the provincial program summaries. These additional services are not cost-shared under hospital insurance. The principles of universal availability of benefits to all eligible residents and portability of benefits are reflected in provisions of each provincial program. For many years, about 99% of all eligible residents have been insured persons. Although provincial plans in general stipulate a waiting period of three months, coverage may continue from the province of previous residence. First-day coverage is generally provided for the newborn, immigrants, and certain other categories of persons without prior coverage in other provinces. A health insurance supplementary fund has been established for residents who have been unable to obtain coverage or who have lost coverage through no fault of their own. Until March 31, 1977 the federal government contributed approximately half the cost of insured in-patient and out-patient services for Canada as a whole. This included payments to Quebec under the Established Programs (Interim Arrangements) Act effective January 1965. The formula provided proportionately larger contributions in those provinces where per capita costs were below the national average and vice-versa. Provinces may raise their portion of insurable costs as they wish, provided that access to services is not impaired. All provinces finance their share in whole or part from general revenue. Established programs financing. Late in 1976, following several years of negotiations, the provinces and the federal government agreed to new financial arrangements for medical care and hospital insurance, among other fiscal matters. This led to the FederalProvincial Fiscal Arrangements and Established Programs Financing Act, 1977, assented to on March 31, 1977, containing consequential amendments to the Medical Care Act and the Hospital Insurance and Diagnostic Services Act. Commencing April 1, 1977, federal contributions to the established programs of hospital insurance, medical care and post-secondary education are no longer directly related to provincial costs, but take the form of the transfer of a predetermined number of tax points, and related equalization and cash payments. Total federal contributions, in general terms, are now based on the current escalated value of the 1975-76 federal contributions for the programs in question. The tax room vacated by the federal government permitted the provinces to increase their tax rates so as to collect additional revenue without necessarily increasing the total tax burden on Canadians. The yield from the new provincial taxes will normally increase faster than the rate of growth of the Gross National Product (GNP). The cash payments are conditional upon the provincial health insurance plans meeting the criteria of the federal health insurance legislation. At the outset, the cash payments will approximate the value of the tax room transferred, and be in the form of per capita payments calculated in accordance with the FederalProvincial Fiscal Arrangements and Established Programs Financing Act, 1977. These per capita payments will be escalated yearly in accordance with changes in the GNP, and adjusted gradually over time so that all provinces at the end of five years will be receiving equal per capita cash contributions.  144 Health Also under the act as of April 1, 1977, the federal government is making additional equal per capita cash contributions yearly to the provinces to contribute toward the costs of certain extended health care services. Health resources fund. The Health Resources Fund Act of 1966 provided $500 million over 15 years (1966-80) for financial assistance in planning, acquisition, construction, renovation, and equipping health training and research facilities. Up to 50% of eligible costs of approved projects are supported by federal contributions. Of this total, $400 million is allocated to provinces on a per capita basis, $25 million is further allocated to the Atlantic provinces for joint projects, and $75 million for health training and research projects of national significance. Professional training program. This program provides about $2.3 million a year to the provinces for training health and hospital personnel. Two types of training are funded by the federal government: bursaries for one academic year or longer, and short courses for up to three months. Assistance may also be given to the holding of, and attendance at, provincial and national conferences with emphasis on health manpower planning and development. Health services for specific groups. Through medical services branch, the national health and welfare department provides or arranges health services for persons whose care is by custom or legislation a federal responsibility. Indians and Inuit, as residents of a province or territory, are entitled to benefits of medical care and hospital insurance. These insured benefits are supplemented by the branch, which helps in arranging transportation and obtaining drugs and prostheses. A comprehensive public health program provides dental care for children, immunization, school health services, health education, and prenatal, postnatal and well-baby clinics. A native alcohol abuse program funds locally-run programs. Since Indians and Inuit comprise only 1.0% of the population and are distributed widely throughout Canada, a network of specially designed health facilities operates in almost 200 communities. Increasing numbers of Indians and Inuit are being trained and employed in public health and medical care programs to facilitate understanding and health activities in the communities. With the exception of insured hospital and medical care programs, administered by the governments of the Yukon Territory and Northwest Territories, the national health and welfare department has for many years managed health services for all residents of the two northern territories. These comprise a comprehensive public health program, special arrangements to facilitate interstation communication, and the transportation of patients from isolated communities to referral medical centres. Several university groups provide, on a rotation basis for specified zones, medical personnel and students. Their activities arefinancedthrough government contracts and medical care insurance. As of January .1978, departmental facilities included six hospitals, three health stations and nine health centres in the Yukon Territory and four hospitals, 39 nursing stations, six health stations and eight health centres in the Northwest Territories. Under the Quarantine Act, all vessels, aircraft, and other conveyances and their crews and passengers arriving in Canada from foreign countries are subject to inspection to detect and correct conditions that could introduce such diseases as smallpox, cholera, plague and yellow fever. Quarantine stations are located at major seaports and airports. The branch enforces standards of hygiene on federal property including ports and terminals, interprovincial means of transport, and Canadian ships and aircraft. Medical services branch determines the health status of all persons referred by the employment and immigration commission for Canadian immigration purposes. It also provides or arranges health care services for certain persons after arrival in Canada; including immigrants who become ill en route or while seeking employment. The branch is responsible for a comprehensive occupational health program for federal employees in Canada and abroad. This includes health counselling, surveillance of the occupational and working environment, pre-employment, periodic and special examinations, first aid and emergency treatment, advisory services and special health programs. Increased attention is given to pre-retirement and stress.  203  145 204 Canada Year Book 1978-79 The department advises the ministry of transport on health and safety in Canadian civil aviation. Regional and headquarters aviation medical officers review medical examinations, participate in aviation safety programs, and assist in air accident investigations. There is close liaison with authorities in foreign aviation medicine, with standards usually based on international agreements. Prosthetic services assists in prosthetic and corrective rehabilitation under agreements with most provinces and with the veterans affairs department, and provides a national focal point for related expertise. Discussions have been held on a plan to transfer this activity to provincial control. Medical services physicians provide an assessment and advisory service to the employment and immigration commission on claims for benefits under the sickness and maternity benefit plan. The Canada Pension Plan maintains its own disability assessment service. Emergency welfare services is responsible for a national capability, embracing government and welfare related non-government agencies of essential welfare services in any type of emergency in Canada. In an effort to improve communication through new technology, the branch has participated in telemedicine experiments, with Moose Factory and Kashechewan, Ont. receiving direct consultation on medical and surgical matters through television. The magnitude of health problems posed by environmental pollution has resulted in a number of activities. The environmental contaminants program is studying effects of mercury pollution from coast to coast. Other environmental contaminants such as cadmium, arsenic and mirex are of growing concern.  Provincial and local health services Regulation of health care, operation of health insurance programs and direct provision of some specialized services rest with the provincial governments; some health responsibilities are delegated to local authorities. Although provinces generally assign primary responsibility for health to one department, the distribution of function varies from one province to another. Some provinces have combined health and social services within the same department. Others maintain liaison between departments responsible for these related services.  In a number of provinces, health insurance programs are administered by semiautonomous boards or commissions, or by a separate department. Some report directly to a minister of health; others are under the jurisdiction of a deputy minister. Several provincial health insurance programs are operated directly by health departments. In each province both institutional and ambulatory care for tuberculosis and mental illness are provided by an agency of the department responsible for health, with increasing attention to preventive services. Programs related to other particular health problems such as cancer, alcoholism and drug addiction, venereal diseases and dental conditions have been developed by government agencies, often in co-operation with voluntary associations. A number of provincial programs serve specific population groups such as mothers and children, the aged, the needy and those requiring rehabilitation. Environmental health, involving education, inspection and enforcement of standards, is frequently shared by health departments and other agencies. Public health or community health units are among the most decentralized. Some are responsible for local health education, school health and organized home care. Although local and regional involvement in health services has been concentrated in hospital planning and some public health aspects, several provinces have inaugurated district and regional boards.  5.5  146 210  Canada Year Book 1978-79  5.5.1 Provincial health insurance plans Following is a summary of provincial health insurance plans. These cover benefits provided in accordance with the program criteria of the federal Hospital Insurance and Diagnostic Services Act and the Medical Care Act. Additional benefits are provided generally on a limited basis. Some such features of certain plans are: dental care for - children, prescribed drugs for the elderly and persons with some particular illnesses, some services of health professionals other than physicians, some sight and hearing aids and rehabilitation services. The federal government is not contributing under federal health insurance legislation toward the costs of these additional benefits. However, it contributes toward the costs of certain health services under the extended health care services program such as nursing home and adult residential care, home care (health aspects) and ambulatory health care services. This summary gives only the highlights of provincial plans and refers to the programs which were in effect on January 1, 1977. Standard medical and hospital benefits are listed, together with additional benefits. Information on details of the plans and on recent changes in coverage, premiums and authorized charges, if any, may be obtained from the provincial agencies responsible. Except as otherwise indicated, there were no premiums or authorized charges. The provisions for assistance vary from province to province. The summary does not include many services which are provided by provincial health departments on a universal basis (such as health unit services, institutional care for tuberculosis and mental patients, venereal disease control, some home care programs), nor does it include details of programs for social service recipients.  British C o l u m b i a . Medical care benefits: all medically required services of medical practitioners and certain surgical-dental procedures undertaken by dental surgeons in hospitals. Additional benefits: optometry, chiropractic, naturopathy, physiotherapy, podiatry, orthoptic treatment and services o f Red Cross nurses, special nurses and the Victorian Order of Nurses, orthodontic services for harelip and cleft palate.. Free prescription drug program for residents 65 and over, and a universal pharmacare plan effective June 1, 1977 which protects individuals from financial hardship as a result of high prescription drug expenses. Premium per month: single, S7.50; two persons, $15.00; family of three or more. SI 8.75. T h e premiums are those for persons who do not qualify for premium assistance on account o f limited income. Hospital in-patient benefits: standard ward and all approved available services. Out-patient: emergency services, minor surgical procedures, day care surgical services, out-patient cancer therapy, psychiatric day care and night care services, day care rehabilitation services, narcotic addiction services, physiotherapy services, diabetic day care, and specified out-patient psychiatric services in designated hospitals, dietetic counselling services; cytology services operated by B C Cancer Institute and renal dialysis treatments in designated hospitals. Out-of-province benefits: (in-patient) during a temporary period o f absence that ends at midnight on the last day o f the 12th month following the month o f departure from province; maximum stay of 12 months unless otherwise approved; referral, if approved by deputy minister.  APPENDIX  147  2 .

STATEMENT ON A PATIENT'S Bill OF RIGHTS Affirmed by the Board of Trustees November 17, 1972  The American Hospital Association presents a Patient's Bill of Rights with the expectation that observance of these rights will contribute to more effective patient ' care and greater satisfaction for the patient, his physician, and the hospital organization. Further, the Association presents these rights in the expectation that they will be supported by the hospital on behalf of its patients, as an integral part of the healing process. It is^  recognized that a personal relationship between the physician and the patient is essential for the provision of proper medical care. The traditional physician-patient relationship takes on a new dimension when care is rendered within an organizational structure. Legal precedent has established that the institution itself also has a responsibility to the patient. It is in recognition of these factors that these rights are affirmed. 1. The patient has the right to considerate and respectful care. 2. The patient has the right to obtain from bis physician complete current information concerning his diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis in terms the patient can be reasonably expected to understand. When it is not medically advisable to give such information to the patient, the information should be made available to an appropriate person in bis behalf. He has the right to know by name, the physician responsible fox coordinating his care. 3. The patient has the right to receive from his physician information necessary to give informed consent prior to the start of any procedure and/ or treatment. Except in emergencies, such information for informed consent, should include but not necessarily be limited to the specific procedure and/or treatment, the medically significant risks involved, and the probable duration of incapacitation. Where medically significant alternatives for care or treatment exist, or when the patient requests information concerning medical alternatives, the patient has the right to such information. The patient also has the right to know the name of the person responsible for the procedures and/or treatment. 4. The patient has the right to refuse treatment to the extent permitted by law, and to be informed of the medical consequences of his action. 5. The patient has the right to every consideration of his privacy concerning his own medical care program. Case discussion, consultation, examination, and treatment are confidential and should be conducted discreetly. Those not directly in-  volved in his care must have the permission of the patient to be present. 6. The patient has therightto expect that all communications and records pertaining to his care should be treated as confidential. 7. The patient has the right to expect that within its capacity a hospital must make reasonable responsetothe request of a patient for services. The hospital must provide evaluation, service, and/ or referral as indicated by the urgency of the case. When medically permissible a patient may be transferred to another facility only after he has received complete information and explanation concerning the needs for and alternatives to such a transfer. The institution to which the patient is to be transferred must first have accepted the patient for transfer. 8. The patient has the right to obtain information as to any relationship of his hospital to other health care and educational institutions insofar as his care is concerned. The patient has the right • to obtain information as to the existence of any professional relationships among individuals, by name, who are treating him. 9. The patient has the right to be advised if the hospital proposes to engage in or perform human experimentation affecting his care or treatment. The patient has the right to refuse to participate in such research projects. 10. The patient has the right to expect reasonable continuity of care. He has the right to know in advance what appointment times and physicians are available and where. The patient has the right to expect that the hospital will provide a mechanism whereby he is informed by his physician or a delegate of the physician of the patient's continuing health care requirements following discharge. 1L The patient has the right to examine and receive an explanation of his bill regardless of source of payment 12. The patient has therightto know what hospital rules and regulations apply to his conduct as a patient.  165 APPENDIX 7 .
