Our expert says:
This is not an area I currently work in, so I'm not sure what the norm is. I think it's considered acceptable for a doc to charge for filling in and signing a form - they should be aware of the patient's financial situation, though, and if you do all the filling in ( I suppose they'd need to check the details you supply, as they are professionally and legally responsible if there is misinformation, and the form is expressing their professional opinion ) and they're just signing it, I don't think any high fee is appropriate. I have never in my life charged for such signatures.
On the other hand, I do think a doc should inform you when there is a non-routine charge, so you know what to expect.
Why not calmly disuss it with her on your next visit ?
