Medical specialist conducted illegal treatment

Jan HuurmanA medical specialist in Curaçao has performed an illegal treatment and then charged that treatment twice. This was reported in January by the Health Care Inspectorate Mr. Jan Huurman.

The medical specialist-still unknown-has carried out medical operations which do not belong to his specialism. The patient then paid this treatment in cash, while the specialist also declared this treatment to the insurer. The Health Care Inspectorate has sent a letter to the Medical Specialists Association of Curaçao with questions about the situation. The Inspectorate has circumstantial evidence that this type of action is more common in Curaçao.
