Of the 13 fee-related complaints, the JMA filed away three after determining that the doctors in question had adhered to the established pricing, while the remaining 10 complaints involved price discrepancies and required resolution in the form of refunds, head of the JMA’s Media Committee Dr Hazem Al-Qarrala said.

The refunds were audited by specialized technical committees, and were determined based on appropriate pricing mechanisms, he said.

Most doctors in Jordan are “trustworthy”, and the medical sector “is recognized for its competence”, Qarrala said, pointing to the minimal number of fee-related complaints.

The association, he added, endeavors to ensure that all parties receive their just dues, with “open doors to anyone who feels that they have been treated unjustly”.
