It's even part of the constitution:

Article 50: Everyone has the right to health protection and care. The state guarantees this right; - by providing free medical and hospital care by means of the installations of the rural medical service network, polyclinics, hospitals, preventative and specialized treatment centers; - by providing free dental care; - by promoting the health publicity campaigns, health education, regular medical examinations, general vaccinations and other measures to prevent the outbreak of disease. All the population cooperates in these activities and plans through the social and mass organizations.

Many developed countries with a single-payer system (like Canada or Spain), have limitations in the types of care covered, for example not covering dental care or eye care. The Cuban system covers both (see also Article 50 of the constitution), albeit with many deficiencies in terms of supplies.
