Funding for simple office procedures performed by a nurse or medical assistant employed by facilities or organizations such as public hospitals, public health units, Independent Health Facilities (IHFs), industrial clinics or long-term care facilities is the responsibility of the facility or organization. Any associated fee-for-service claims submitted by physicians for such services are payable at nil and any payments may be subject to recovery action by the ministry.

For complete information about physician billing for services rendered by non-physicians, see the General Preamble B.10 Delegated Procedures. For information on professional standards for delegation of a controlled act, see the current edition of CPSO's policy titled Delegation of Controlled Acts (November 1999 version is available at :  http://www.cpso.on.ca/Policies/delegation.htm).
