Physicians who had a reduction in their fee-for-service billing activity over the past 2 years.


The Regional Health Authorities can find a replacement when a physician’s fee-for-service income over the past 2 years represents less than the current Income threshold for the program or if a physician is on a prolonged sick leave.

The Regional Health Authorities must contact this department to confirm eligibility and verify if such an arrangement can be made.
