China investigates black market trade in hospital appointments

A black market in selling hospital appointments is being investigated after a video of a woman complaining about the practice went viral. Most hospitals in China issue tickets to patients to determine when they are going to be seen in cases of non-emergency treatment. Often the hospital charges for these tickets with prices varying depending on the hospital and the type of medical treatment. However, with a limited number of appointments each day, the concern is a secondary market can occur with people obtaining tickets from the hospital only to sell them on to patients in need at an inflated price.
