NLMA NEWS:
New FFS Family Physician codes supporting patient care and collaboration

 

 

 

On October 4, 2018, the Family Practice Renewal Program (FPRP) launched two new fee codes as part of its Fee Code Program. A new Shared Care Code and a Patient Care Telephone Code are now billable by fee-for-service family physicians licensed to practice in the province who meet eligibility criteria. The new codes will compensate physicians for two-way collaborative conferencing with other health care providers and the development of a patient care plan, as well as two-way telephone communication between the physician and the patient. Additional fee codes are also in development. The goal of the Fee Code Program is to improve the current MCP fee schedule, while at the same time improving patient access and health outcomes. To learn more, please visit the FPRP website.
