VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The BC government has filed an injunction against two private Vancouver clinics that are reportedly double-billing patients.

The province’s Medical Services Commission released an audit last month that concluded Cambie Surgeries Corp. and the Specialist Referral Clinic were billing patients for services already covered by BC MSP.

The commission ordered the clinics to stop, but both clinics ignored an Aug. 17th deadline. The commission says it has now filed for an injunction, because neither clinic has even responded to its audit or order.

Dr. Brian Day, who runs both clinics, has launched his own court challenge of the province’s health-care laws and repeatedly challenged the government to attempt to shut him down.
