In May 2019, the Facility Engagement Initiative’s funding for physicians was held at the pre-PMA sessional rates of $134.77 for general practitioners and $158.97 for specialists while the Joint Clinical Committee rate parity issue was deliberated at provincial tables.
The Physician Services Committee has approved that physicians of both groups – family and specialist physicians – who participate in quality and system improvement activities on behalf of the Joint Clinical Committees will be compensated at the same rate of $158.97 per hour for their participation, retroactive to April 1, 2019.
Please find attached a letter that outlines the Facility Engagement Initiative’s process for reimbursing physicians for engagement activities occurring between April 1, 2019 and November 10, 2020.
