May a doctor in California charge an annual administrative fee or other fees in addition to what the patient's plan may pay?
1 Answer from Attorneys
I would tend to think so, assuming the fees are disclosed in advance and agreed to by doctor and patient. Doctors aren't under any broad general duty to keep their charges within what a particular insurer is willing to cover. There might be exceptions.
