The median fees for a regular consultation and an extended consultation were $350 and $500 respectively, both were comparable to those of the 1996 survey. Parallel to the economic downturn in the territory, medical fees had declined over the past 12 months immediately before the survey was conducted. 18% of respondents indicated a downward adjustment in their overall charges while a mere 4% reported an increase. The majority, or 78%, of the respondents had not adjusted their fees during this period.
