HC Deb 30 January 1913 vol 47 cc1497-8
63. Mr. CASSEL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury at what periods payments will be made to doctors on the panels who are remunerated on the capitation system, and when will the first payments be made; whether the lists of patients furnished by doctors will be accepted as sufficient for the purpose of payment, or whether it will be necessary to produce the patients' tickets; and whether remuneration will commence to run from 15th January, 1913, or the date when the doctor accepts an insured person as his patient, and how will such date be ascertained?


The Regulations contemplate quarterly payments, but, as I have previously stated, arrangements may be made by insurance com- mittees whereby payments may be made on account during the quarter. The lists of patients sent in by the doctors will be checked by the insurance committees from the lists furnished by the societies, not from the medical tickets. The payments are due as from 15th January or whatever later date the doctor joined the panel.
