I work for a family medicine physician and we often see patients who are private pay and we often provide a self pay courtesy discount which is totally allowed because we are not filing a claim or anything. We also perform in office stress testing, lab studies and a few other in office procedures and for private/self pay, we do give a 20% discount on the services. We mostly pay client prices for ordered lab test through the contracted labs which are inexpensive for us and therefore, we compare the client price to the patient price and negotiate an amount to collect from the patient. I do believe this is OK...it's the physicians discretion....hope this helps.
