Tell Me Again Why We Need This?

A lot of Americans tout the Canadian health care system as a model for us to follow. Are they sure?
A 21-year-old man died of appendicitis after he was refused treatment at an emergency clinic because he didn't have his provincial health card with him.

Gerald Augustin complained of stomach pains on Thursday but the receptionist at the St-Andre medical centre told him he had to return home to get his health card. He didn't make it back to the clinic in Montreal's east end.
UPDATE: Link is now fixed.
