Based on a process established in the last Physician Master Agreement, several of the GPSC fees have been increased. The fees actually went into effect April 1, 2020 but are being implemented now due to pandemic delays. Family doctors can expect to receive an MSP retroactive payment in spring 2022.

If you have questions about GPSC fees, please contact gpsc.billing@doctorsofbc.ca.
