A Laval family physician raised more than $ 1.6 million last year, the largest amount ever paid to RAMQ.
The epidemic did not have a negative impact on the doctor’s productivity, he billed $ 1,641,746 in 2020, according to data from Reggie DL Insurance Maladi du Quebec (RAMQ).
Furthermore, it is confirmed in RAMQ that this is the largest amount billed to a general practitioner Journal.
In 2019, a Laval Doctor won $ 1,631,777, but privacy prevents him from knowing that he is the same professional.
In total, 15 general practitioners earned more than $ 1 million in 2020.
This is an excellent income compared to the average of $ 271,881 the year before. There will be more millionaires in 2019, however, with 19 people.
According to the F desdration des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec (FMOQ), these physicians are exceptional cases and work more than 80 hours per week.
“They need to see a lot of patients [pour en arriver là], Its president dR Louis Godin. They are abundantly available. ”
Ten other family doctors also won over $ 900,000 last year.
These amounts include all earnings (bonuses, acts, overtime).
However some office expenses should be reduced. RAMQ checks that the remuneration is compliant.
According to the FMOQ, it pays more to treat people who are very ill than normal cases without an appointment.
During the epidemic, up to half of frontline consultations took place remotely, such as by phone.
“The doctor can do a lot in a day. He does not have to travel. Those who want to work more earn money,” said Regis Blaise, a professor at the University of Montreal School of Public Health.
Experts expect these revenues to raise questions about other rates and policies of the health network.
“There’s an imbalance,” Blaise said. Compared to doctors working on the phone, as opposed to the efforts of other professionals at the forefront, we may ask ourselves: Is our money worth it? “
“We have a limited budget. What we give to doctors, we do not give elsewhere, adds Maud Laborz, who specializes in health policies at Lavelle University. This raises the question of whether this is the best way to allocate financial resources.”
