Settlement of the Panel Question
The special conference of representatives of the local medical and panel committees called by the Insurance Acts Committee of the British Medical Association, as anticipated in my last letter, has accepted the terms there given as offered by the minister of health. These terms are regarded as equivalent to nearly all that has been demanded by the profession. After a certain amount of argument a vote was taken, and the offer was accepted by a majority of 141 votes against 29. A debate then took place as to which of the alternatives offered by the minister should be accepted. These are a capitation fee of $2 for five years, and a court of inquiry to determine the terms. A motion in favor of the latter was carried by 123 votes to 49.
