Czech court approves fees for patients

New York Times, May 29, 2008

Earlier this year, the Czech government began charging about $1.85 for a visit to the doctor or a prescription and twice that for each day spent in the hospital. The upfront payments were intended to reduce unnecessary visits to the doctor and medications.
