80.With regard to the collection of payment, occupational therapists must:
(1) not collect interest on outstanding accounts unless they have agreed to this condition with their client in advance. The interest thus charged must be at a reasonable rate;
(2) not sell or assign their accounts for professional fees, except to another occupational therapist or a company or partnership within which they are authorized to carry on professional activities pursuant to the Regulation respecting the practice of the profession of occupational therapist in a partnership or joint-stock company (chapter C-26, r. 116.02);
(3) ensure, as far as possible, that the person appointed to collect fees proceeds with tact and moderation as well as a respect for the confidentiality and practices related to debt collection authorized by law. They may communicate only the necessary information for that purpose.
