The Ministry of Health and the Ontario Medical Association have been working together to implement physician compensation increases in accordance with the 2021 Physician Services Agreement.
As per INFOBulletin #220401-Temporary Increases for Physician Services Payments, Year 2 (2022-2023) of the Agreement provided a temporary 2.01% global increase to the value of Fee Schedule Codes (FSCs) for physician services rendered between April 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023.
As per the 2021 Physician Services Agreement and further detailed in INFOBulletin #220803-2021 Physician Services Agreement Year Two Exclusions, hospital technical fees are not eligible for the temporary 2.01% increase. Due to the complexity of the change, these codes were receiving the increased value until a system change could be implemented.
