Medical
English term or phrase: à l'acte
Contrairement au Secteur Public Hospitalier, où les praticiens sont salariés, les établissements de santé privés fonctionnent pour la plupart en partenariat avec des médecins libéraux qui exercent leur profession en leur sein, conformément à un contrat conclu avec l’établissement, et sont rémunérés à l’acte par la Sécurité Sociale, les mutuelles ou les patients.

I understand the meaning, but I am looking for something appropriate to the medical field.

fee-for-service
Explanation:
Dear Paul,

I just happen to stumble on your question. It is quite common to say that "les médecins ou les chirurgiens sont rémunérés à l'acte".

Termium proposes :

1. Domaine(s)
– Remuneration (Personnel Management)

Domaine(s)
– Rémunération (Gestion du personnel)

pay a fee-for-service Source
payer à l'acte Source
rémunérer à l'acte Source
OBS – Equivalent obtenu du Dr Gagnon de la FMOQ.


So, in real life, this what the English-speaker says :

ABSTRACT: To encourage doctors to practice more preventive medicine and make more efficient use of specialty services, managed care organizations and medical groups are experimenting with alternatives to traditional capitation. Variations include paying primary care physicians fee-for-service while capitating specialists, and paying specialists a global fee for all the care a patient may need from a given referral. These payment mechanisms are supposed to offset incentives inherent in capitated systems to avoid seeing patients or to refer them indiscriminately by selectively redistributing physician risk, rewarding primary care doctors for doing more and specialists for managing cases conservatively. However, questions remain about the workability of some of these approaches and whether they will lower physician compensation by limiting the potential rewards of capitation.

Thanks again, Connie.
I was using something like "service-based fees," but it is better to use something sanctioned by actual usage.
I am editing another one of these huge jobs from France, 44,000 words this time.
I found that glossary I promised you and will put in the mail.
Best regards,

Explanation:
robert and collins
every "acte medical" in the french system is codified in the medical procedure and it can correspond to a simple consultation or a treatment or x rays and so on
it is the basis of the "facturation et remboursement des frais medicaux"
