Health care for-profit corporation calls for more private payment

For-profit health care corporations continue to lead the drive for more private payment for health care services.  This time, it's the CEO and president of Chartwell that "foresees long-term care offering a private-pay option in order to meet the demands of a changing demographic."

Seniors “won’t settle for anything less and they will put all of the pressure on the government to allow them to buy what they want,” Brent Binions told the organization representing Ontario for-profit LTC providers.

“I strongly believe that if it’s a little more competitive, there’s a little more return for your innovation, for what you do, people will be more innovative."

Nevertheless, Binions adds: "“We’re not saying we want to make more money so let’s have private pay, that’s not the goal."

Of course.
