Managing SSC Fees
SSC has made various changes to its fees and introduced new ones over the past few years to support specialists delivering high quality care to patients. However, the SSC fees have experienced a higher than anticipate use, which has significantly over-extended the SSC fixed budget. Unlike regular fee-for-service fees funding through the Medical Services Plan, SSC’s budget is capped on an annual basis. New fee changes take effect July 1, 2017. See Special Bulletin for more information.
