• Special visits to multiple resident dwellings

Special visit premiums for house calls to apartment blocks and other multiple resident dwellings will be for the first patient seen in the building, regardless of the number of households or residential units visited. Appropriate assessment fees remain payable for additional patients seen in same building.

Amendment List #5, which contains the updated pages to the Schedule of Benefits reflecting the changes identified above, is enclosed with this Bulletin.
