Allegations of over-billing targetting some doctors and clinics have led to a request for a class action lawsuit against Quebec's Health ministry and the health insurance board.
Two Montreal eye clinics have allegedly charged for government-covered drugs, although, it seems, no names have yet been made public.
Philip Leveillé and his lawyers have reportedly filed the request in Quebec Superior Court.
They also say many city clinics and physicians are charging up to 10 times the cost of drugs normally covered by the government, that the government did little to stop the illegal pratice.
It's believed several hundred-thousand Quebecers have been affected.
