Why must I pay for a medical report?
The completion of a medical report would require the doctor to review the patient’s full medical records and prepare the report with the correct information as required. This is not done during a patient’s outpatient visit and hence, the outpatient consultation fee does not include the cost of medical reports.
The fee levied for providing medical reports covers the hospital’s administrative costs and the doctor’s professional input.
