Some specialist doctors overcharge cancer patients

“Some cancer specialist doctors overcharge cancer patients by so much money that some dying patients have to sell their own home to pay the doctors bills”.

Some prostate cancer specialists demand a $10000 upfront cash payment above the private fund rebate before they will operate on prostate cancer.”

said Dr Con Costa President of Doctors Reform Society.
“It is good the Labor party are proposing extra funding for Medicare to pay cancer specialists an extra $150 on top of current rebates if the specialist agrees not to charge extra fees to the cancer patient .Hopefully most cancer specialist doctors will cooperate and stop overcharging cancer patients.said Dr Costa.
