  •  I didn't say that docs get paid for CT scans, (0+ / 0-)

    though the practices performing them certainly do.
    I said that a major component of high prices is that doctors (and hospitals) do procedeures they can justify regardless of whether they are actually appropriate.  I know you are aware of heart bypass rates in the US. You can't know that information and tell me that I'm wrong.

    As to referrals for scans,  everybody knows that referrals are good for business.  If you can't get paid for something directly, it's not bad to pass referrals along to people who will refer back if they find something.
