ABI raises prices for GP reports

The ABI has agreed to increase the price paid for GP reports in return for a more professional approach from doctors.

The British Medical Association has agreed to provide a clause for GPs asking them to recognise that life insurance is a “social good” which benefits patients and it should be carried out to appropriate professional standards.

A five-year deal has been agreed between the ABI and the BMA. For the first year, which starts from September 1, a GP report will cost £74.70 up from £70.50 and an examination will cost £82.20 up from £77.50.
