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.
Physicians that have been compensated through FEMS will receive a “top up”. This
amount is the difference between the sessional rate paid in FEMS and the new rate
approved by the JCC.
Beginning November 11, 2020, the new rate is being adjusted in FEMS and will be managed through the MSA annual allocation budget.
