More on Bribing Doctors

The going rate for physician bribery seems to be around $100 per act. In Great Britain it is slightly less, about $88, or £55.

In one recent American case, I was offered $100 for putting a hypotensive diabetic patient of mine on an ACE inhibitor (“Incentive, Bribe or Kickback?“) Now my British fellow GPs stand to make £55 for every dementia diagnosis they make over the next six months.

The outcry among doctors has been loud and clear – this is unethical!
