What Does ICBC Pay the Doctors They Hire

Each year ICBC releases financial information. One of the printouts that has much interest is called “The Amount Paid to Suppliers for Goods and Services”. Basically, that document shows how much ICBC is paying their defence doctors each year.

The numbers underestimate the amount of defence work a particular doctor does because the work done for other insurance companies or directly through defence lawyers does not make its way into these figures. Therefore, when you look at the below chart, the numbers represent the minimum amount of defence work that a particular doctor is doing. Probably, although statistics are not available, the actual defence worked done by these doctors is significantly higher than noted below. However, the numbers do give you a good idea who ICBC likes to use:
