Fujian raises cost of medical treatment

The Fujian Provincial Bureau of Commodity Price and Fujian Provincial Health and Family Planning Commission said on Nov 18 that it will adjust the costs of medical services - including emergency services – from Dec 15.
The commission decided to raise the prices of emergency treatments due to increasing costs - such as those involving operating ambulances - in recent years. The fee for transport by ambulance has been increased from 25 yuan($4.12)to 35 yuan, and use of a stretcher will cost another 30 yuan,and psychologist will cost another 100 yuan.
The fee for a consultation with a doctor has also increased - a consultation with any doctor up to the grade of supervisor now costs 15 yuan, and a consultation with an associate professor of medicine and above will cost 20 yuan.
The new prices cover a wide range of treatments, including in the fields of neurosurgery, radiotherapy and physiotherapy.
