Profiling Physicians by Payment Program: A Closer Look at Three Provinces Core

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.
