Doctors could be deterred from offering assisted suicide due to pay delays: Doctors NS’ Holland

Doctors Nova Scotia President-elect Tim Holland is worried doctors aren’t offering medically assisted death because of payment delays.  The doctor told CBC he still hasn’t been paid for any he’s done for patients since Bill-C14 took effect last June.  The Department of Health and Wellness says 35 of 67 claims have been paid, with the others being assessed.  New billing codes are being blamed.
