Czech court approves fees for patients
The Czech Constitutional Court has ruled that the government had the right to demand fees from patients using the healthcare system. Earlier this year, the Czech government began charging about $1.85 for a visit to the doctor or a prescription and twice that for each day spent in the hospital. The upfront payments were intended to reduce unnecessary visits to the doctor and medications.
