Medocare coordinators, just like other doctors, have specific clinic hours in their hospitals/clinics. Since they are not employees of Medocare, they cannot be forced to spend extra time to attend to Medocare members. As such, they will only see Medocare members for outpatient consultations during their clinic schedules. However, their secretaries are almost always present in their clinic and they can issue the appropriate referrals as instructed by the coordinator. Some
