  •  My doctor does it all the time... (0+ / 0-)

    for my husband when he comes along for one of my appointments. I have Medicare, and until today he wasn't insured at all (well, actually Jan 1, but thank you ACA), so when he had anything crop up he had to pay full price to see her.

    She'll see me for my thing, then she asks him if he has any issues, and he'll get a checkup and scripts if necessary, all under just my Medicare copay.

    I think it depends on how human and humane the doctor in question is.
