Abstract

Physicians are under an excessive control of relevant laws because they have sublime social responsibilities to take care of the health and life of patients. Physicians managing medical institutions are taking pains to abide by various regulations under the medical services law, national health insurance law, medical treatment benefit law, industrial disaster indemnity insurance law, and automobile damage indemnity coverage law. It seems irrational that dual punishment is applied by one article and physicians are revealed in uncertain environment that can be degraded to offender without mistake or evil. For this reason, the regulations need to be reformed. To reform the regulations, firstly, the concept of fraud and surcharge should be established, secondly, unification of the punishment regulation system is necessary to avoid irrational dual punishment, and most importantly, the medical professionals' voluntary observance of the regulations is needed.
