Would health-care reform reduce homelessness?

The Obama Administration says yes, extending publicly-funded programs such as Medicaid and Medicare is essential to combating homelessness in America.

I'm not sure that makes sense. I don't like parts of the bill. I do not want mandated health care. What's wrong with it being like canada? There when you need it leave you alone if you don't want it. Fining people for not joinging was a straw too far.
