Under Standard 6, it is written that a provider must not charge for after hours care with the inference that all care provided after hours is covered under the AHCIP. That is not necessarily true. Some care provided after hours is uninsured under the AHCIP and it should still be perfectly reasonable to charge patients for that care, regardless as to the time of day in which it is provided. A revision of this standard is necessary. It should read something like "A regulated member must not charge patients an additional fee specifically for accessing services covered under the AHCIP."
