Retroactive pay for OMA physicians

Question:

Recent communication from OMA informed us that we will be receiving retroactive pay for 2017-2018 from the MoH in December. Does MDBilling have any information on this?

Answer:

There is an MoH bulletin with more information on their website.
Please see the link: http://health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/ohip/bulletins/4000/bul4728.aspx
 
A brief summary from the notice:

The Ministry of Health (ministry) and the Ontario Medical Association are subject to a Binding Arbitration Award. As part of this award, implementation is underway for the retroactive compensation adjustment for all physician payments for fiscal year 2017/18. There is a further retroactive compensation adjustment for fiscal year 2018/19. The ministry is in the process of calculating the compensation adjustments by specialty.

At the present time, the ministry estimates issuing one-time payments in the following timelines:

  • 2017/18 payments – December 2019
  • 2018/19 payments – April 2020

If you are currently receiving payments from the ministry directly to your individual bank account, no action is required.

Please see the full bulletin for more details: http://health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/ohip/bulletins/4000/bul4728.aspx

Thank you,
MDBilling
