A new study by Bacchus Barua and Sazid Hasan published in the Fraser Research Bulletin measures the cost that public wait times are costing individuals waiting for treatment. The study found that on the conservative side, the estimated cost of waiting is 5.8 billion dollars. The study used factors such as the average number of weeks Canadians waited for care (10.9 from specialist to appointment), number of patients on wait lists (1,040,791), percentage of Canadians who were adversely affected (13.2%), and the average wage in each province ($26.16). The estimate of 5.8 billion dollars only counts costs absorbed by the individual treatment. It does not consider any friends of family members that spend time caring for the individual.
