Since the introduction of the public medical care system in Canada in the 1960s, the majority of physicians in Canada have been compensated through a fee-for-service (FFS) program. Over time, the use of alternative payment programs (APPs) has become more prominent. Nationally, 24.2% of physicians' clinical earnings were paid through APPs in 2007-2008. This analysis investigates how physicians in Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick were paid in 2007-2008, and the distribution of physicians paid through APPs or FFS by age, gender and specialty.

The updated version of Profiling Physicians by Payment Program: A Closer Look at Three Provinces is now available for download.

Reference 9 in the original report was found to be outdated and the following paragraph was removed:

Furthermore, a relatively higher proportion of all physicians in Newfoundland and Labrador were paid mainly though APPs than their colleagues in P.E.I. and New Brunswick. According to the report Supply, Distribution and Migration of Canadian Physicians, 2008, international medical graduates (IMGs) in Newfoundland and Labrador represent 40.1% of the physician workforce, compared to New Brunswick and P.E.I., where a smaller percentage of the workforce is made up of IMGs (24.7% and 15.6%, respectively).8 In Newfoundland and Labrador, IMGs may be a factor in the higher proportion of physicians on APPs, given that the Newfoundland and Labrador provincial APP document states "international medical graduates who are not fully licensed in Canada are not able to practice on a fee-for-service basis."9
