This bulletin describes clarification to the Schedule of Benefits for Physician Services (Schedule).

On October 13, 2016, the Physician Services Committee (PSC), a bilateral committee of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Ontario Medical Association, reviewed the wording of the Schedule found on page GP 53 related to Team Care in Teaching Units. This section describes the conditions where a physician supervising a resident or intern may submit a claim for the insured service provided by the trainee.

The PSC has agreed to interpret and clarify that this section is intended to apply to trainees (i.e. residents and fellows). For clarity, physicians submitting claims for clinical fellows may continue to do so.

The PSC has also agreed to establish a working group to review this section of the Schedule in greater detail. This review will seek to make recommendations on additional changes as required.
