driver medical a rip off
Information for Health Professionals.
If your doctor is your family doctor and you have been seeing him/her for some years, it is ONLY necessary to have a medical with one fee every 5 years.
The other 4 years are at the sole discretion on the doctor based upon your medical history.
If you have a pre-existing condition that is unstable, then a medical will be required every year for which you pay.
If you are in good health, have an annual blood test, check BP, etc, a doctor does NOT have to slug you a fee.
If they state they have to, direct them to the link above and tell them it is NOT necessary.
We are being ripped off because doctors are not reading the whole of the medical certificate conditions, and see it as a money making venture.
