But underpinning all these issues were differing visions of the way in which a health insurance system should function. Doctors, dentists and hospital administrators assumed that they would be appointed to provincial and federal commissions and that their views would prevail. Workers and farmers, however, argued that the needs of health service users had to be considered as equally important. Thus, the medical domination of the proposed administrative commissions was unacceptable, as was the ongoing demand for fee-for-service payment. But there was some common ground: all the supporters were concerned about the overall cost of the program and the emerging opposition to it from Ontario and Quebec. In response, the Special Committee encouraged the Department of Pensions and National Health to confer with the various groups and to revise the legislation. This was done through 1943 and early 1944 and resulted in further Special Committee meetings, which lasted until July 1944.
