Medical service fees in Alberta and BC have recently had some updates and changes have also occurred to the OntarioMD funding program. Find out how these changes may affect you below.
MSP fee increase in BC
Any claims that were being processed when the change was made and have been submitted at the previous rates will be adjusted to match the new rates. The explanatory code BG-Amount will be displayed and a retroactive payment will be applied to a future remittance for any services provided between April 1st and June 4th that have been paid using the previous rates.
The MSC Payment Schedule on the MSP website will be updated with the new rates shortly. All ClinicAid accounts have already been updated to reflect these new rates.
Alberta Medical Association’s Fee Navigator
Besides being mobile-friendly, the Fee Navigator also gives physicians access to billing advice and tips, makes understanding billing easier, and is always up-to-date.
OntarioMD funding ends
Some good news, however! Physicians using ClinicAid are able to integrate their EMR directly with ClinicAid’s API by logging in to their ClinicAid account and navigating to https://billing.www.clinicaid.ca/doc/.
