I am seriously trying to find the number of Canadians who came to the US for Healthcare Services in 2008 VS. the number of Americans who crossed the border and went to Canada for Healthcare services?

I have no idea where you can find that information if it is even available. Since Americans coming to Canada would be using our system illegally there probably won't be any accurate numbers.

Why would they take a bus across the border when they can do it by phone / fax/ internet? For the meds that is.
And yes, you will find a lot of Canadians come to the US for medical treatments that they are waiting for in Canada. It can mean the difference between life and death, and apparently the Canadian government doesn't care if you are sick and die, you have to wait your turn.
