Doctors are unethically (and illegally) charging commission from labs for patient referral. We can stop this practice by following a simple step.
DO NOT GIVE THE NAME OF THE REFERRING DOCTOR TO THE LAB WHEN YOU GET A TEST DONE. IF THE LAB DOES NOT KNOW WHO REFERRED THE PATIENT, THE COMMISSION CAN NOT BE PAID.
This will reduce the diagnostic test cost for everyone and reduce unnecessary testing.
