Show Me the Money 2! 2007 Doctors' ICBC Billings Revealed

Further to my previous post on ICBC and high billing doctors I am pleased to report that ICBC has now published their 2007 “statements and schedules of financial information which reveal, amongst other things, the “amounts paid to suppliers of goods and services in 2007“.
One of the ‘goods and services’ often purchased by ICBC is the “Independent Medical Exam”. This is done either to get an ‘independent’ opinion of the medical condition of someone seeking ‘no-fault benefits’ from ICBC, or, further to the Rules of Court which permit one side of a lawsuit to get an ‘independent’ exam addressing the medical condition of a plaintiff involved in an ICBC injury tort claim.
As an ICBC claims lawyer I find it interesting to see which doctors ICBC routinely uses to conduct these independent medical exams. From reviewing these annual reports it becomes clear that there is a small number of doctors who do a significant amount of work on behalf of ICBC.
As promised in my earlier blog, below are some of the highlights of the 2007 report of doctor billings:
Dr. Kevein Favero (Orthopedic Surgeon, Langley, BC): $188,814
Dr. N. K. Reebye (Physical Medecine and Rebabilitation, New Westminster): $339,243
Dr. Peter M. Rees (Neurologist, Burnaby): $215,788
Dr. J. F Schweigel (Orthopedic Surgeon) : $924,243
Dr. D. M. Laidlow: (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Westbank) $165,657
Dr. Robert W. McGraw: (Orthopedic Surgoen, Vancouver) $224,375
Dr. T O’Farrell: (Orthopedic Surgoen, Kelowna) $147,003
Dr. James Warren: (Orthopedic Surgoen, Victoria) $111,041
Dr. O. M. Sovio: (Orthopedic Surgeon, Abbotsford) $252,916
Dr. H. Davis: (Psychiatrist, Vancouver) $164,755
Dr. Marc Boyle (Orthopaedic Surgeon, North Vancouver) $353,822
Dr. Paul Bishop (Vancouver, BC) $357,358
Dr. Mark Crossman (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Vancouver) $83,577
Dr. I. G. Dommisse (Orhopaedic Surgoen, New Westminster) $156,650
