Retroactive pay for OMA physicians
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.
