1. DISCOUNTED FEES FOR NEW PHYSICIANS

As part of the Interim Agreement between the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and the Ministry of Health, a system of discounted fees to certain new and the Ministry physicians practising in oversupplied areas of the province is being established. This initiative is intended to encourage physicians to practice in areas of need in the province, in keeping with the goal of the Agreement to "achieve an adequate supply and distribution of physician services throughout Ontario."

This will affect physicians :

  • who are issued a billing number after December 15, 1996, but before January 1, 2000;
  • who commenced practice in Ontario less than 36 months prior to the receipt of that billing number * (see page 2); and
  • who practice in the oversupplied areas identified below.

The following areas are designated as oversupplied for General Practitioners.

City of Toronto City of Kingston

Borough of East York City of Nepean
City of North York City of Vanier
City of Etobicoke City of Gloucester
