The National Assembly passed a bill on Tuesday that will change how Quebec citizens get healthcare.

According to CBC News, the bill will include an increase in the number of patients that doctors need to deal with, and restricting access to in vitro fertilization for women. 

Despite these challenges, Health Minister Gaetan Barrette, who introduced the bill last year, said that doctors still need to find a way to guarantee that 85 percent of the province has a family doctor by 2017. 

In response, the Federation des medecins omnipracticiens du Quebec stated that they will provide some solutions such as superclinics, and ensuring that patients won't have to wait longer than three days to see a physician.
