French doctors want more control over fee changes:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Doctors in France who work under contract both in the public and private sectors and have their own system of charges have expressed worries about the implications of medical fee reforms in France (see Clinica No 955, p 3). A group of seven doctors' associations is jointly proposing its own solution. It is suggesting a new, single contractual system between the sickness insurance associations and doctors who set their own charges and want to have powers to oppose state control by redefining the relative competencies of the state and of the sickness insurance associations. The reimbursement structure for medical procedures performed in the private sector in France is being overhauled from January 1 next year.
