Doctors of BC and the BC government have agreed on temporary billing changes to enable physicians to better utilize virtual care, reducing the need for people to attend physician offices in person. New, temporary fee codes have also been introduced to address added costs of treating patients with COVID-19 in physician offices.
For full information, please visit Doctors of BC's Billing changes - COVID-19 page.
To keep physicians informed, Doctors of BC has also created a COVID-19 resource page that includes information on:
- Clinic care, testing, infection control, and information for patients through a link to the BCCDC site.
- Self-isolation direction for physicians travelling to BC from other countries.
- Insurance and benefits during quarantine.
- CMPA protection during COVID-19.
