Doctors Rake In Thousands of Dollars a Day Giving Flu Shots

In Quebec, doctors who administer flu shots can earn close to $5000 a day. An audit found that the Government has spent a whopping $416 million in over-payments to the area’s doctors over the last five years. If that doesn’t tell you how big this business is, I don’t know what will. The situation is tricky, though, because it doesn’t require a doctor to administer the shot. But when a doctor does do the work, they are paid well. According to cjad.com, doctors can see 250 patients a day at a rate of $20 to $100 per patient.It is a loophole in a sense. In a document (French) from 2007, it specified that doctors could gouge the system so long as they “evaluated the patients” and “were present at time of the immunization.” It doesn’t even seem as if they need to be administering it if they don’t want to do so. Clearly, this isn’t practical application at all. How could a doctor reasonably “evaluate” 250 patients per day?
