Enforcing Patient Preferences: Linking Payment for Medical Care to Informed Consent
Kapp, Marshall B.
JAMA. 1989 Apr 7; 261(13): 1935-1938.
To insure that medical interventions take place after informed consent, Kapp proposes that reimbursement for care be linked directly to proof that the treatment was consented to by either the patient or a suitable designated decision maker. If proof of informed consent is absent, compensation should be denied to the health care provider. Informed consent standards could be monitored by utilization review bodies. (KIE abstract)
