Complaints over excessive doctor fees jumped four-fold since 2010
from Montreal Gazette
The number of Quebecers filing complaints about excessive fees charged by doctors in private practice has soared by 374 per cent during the past five years, according to newly released figures by the Quebec College of Physicians. In some cases, ophthalmologists have charged hundreds of dollars for eye drops that should cost as little as $20. Increasingly, physicians who perform vasectomies outside of hospital are invoicing patients "accessory" fees that are not permitted under the law.
