New Brunswick's auditor general says the amount of money paid to the province's doctors should be made public.
Kim MacPherson says the government already releases the list of its employees making more than $60,000 annually.
But doctors aren't on that list.
She says releasing the information would provide greater accountability.
Last month, MacPherson flagged concerns about double-billing among doctors.
As well, she pointed out that 16 doctors received more than one million dollars each from medicare last year.
