Components of a consultation
Dr K K Aggarwal, National President IMA
IMA is keen to determine optimum rates for professional consultations in different outpatient and inpatient settings. Most professionals are not even aware of the complexities that are a part of a so-called "simple consultation".
IMA has formed a time bound committee, IMA costing department with Dr Vijay Agarwal (9818766000) as its chairman.
IMA has made a preliminary effort in detailing the components of consultation that should ideally be compensated.
Mentioned below is a template and we request you to fill in the amount that you are charging presently and what you should be charging.
How much time do you think is required to fulfill the obligations of a proper consultation?
