Q&A - Doctor's Fees for Medical Reports
As we approach 80 we get a notification from ICBC to book an appointment with our GP to review our health issues and to see if we are still able to drive.
Here is my complaint.
This notification comes at the same time of year as my physical (now every two years as you get older!) I had my physical and a week later I am called back in for a half hour assessment for ICBC appointment. My Dr. referred to my physical results and said everything was OKAY and approved the ICBC document in less that 5 minutes!. His fee for this was 125.00.
Here's my gripe.
I would like to see ICBC set a flat fee for doctors to charge for this examination.
I am getting through the grapevine from other seniors that their doctor has done a NO CHARGE when the visit if close to their physical appointment time to fees for this ICBC appointment from 85.00 and up to 200. from other physicians.
How do I relay this to ICBC to recommend a flat fee to Doctors for this required appointment that must be done every two years starting at 80?
