The Doctors' Union of São Paulo (Simesp), together with the Regional Council of Medicine of São Paulo (Cremesp) and the Associação Paulista de Medicina (APM) announced on Wednesday (18), a joint official statement denouncing companies that are offering discounts on doctor visits and, in some cases, even exams through the Internet.

In recent months a large number of sites have been offering discounts on some laboratory tests and consultations, through guides, discount cards, prepaid cards, among others.

According to Article 72 of the Code of Medical Ethics, physicians are prohibited from establishing ties with companies that advertise or market the so-called discount cards. So it should not be associated with the practice since it is considered ethical and professional violations.

As for the service offered to the population, the rebate scheme in consultation makes no warranties minimal assistance, and is not responsible for the completeness of the patient's health, which is vulnerable in situations that require other medical referrals, tests and procedures.

The official statement is available in full site do Simesp.
