Fatwa - Doctors Fees

Q: Is it permissible to charge a patient a certain amount if they are paying cash, and inflate the amount if they are on medical aid?

 

A:

Giving a discount to cash patients is permissible. At the same time medical aid patients should not be unduly exploited although they could be charged a higher rate. Both doctor and patient should be aware of the applicable rate prior to consultation or treatment.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
