Fee-for-service payment is based on the number and types
of services provided.
Salary is paid in accordance to the Medical Pay Plan (MPP). To find out about the Medical Pay Plan, practitioners are advised to contact the Regional Health Authority for the area in which they wish to work.
Services rendered by practitioners are paid for on an hourly
basis for designated services.
To initiate any of these remuneration options, the following
documents must be completed:
Practitioner Registration Form.
Authorization Form (if applicable) – Some physicians delegate
the authority to submit/transmit claims on their behalf to one or more
members of their staff. This form need not be completed if the practitioner
intends to submit/transmit all claims.
- Direct Deposit (if applicable) – Fee-for-service
payments are made directly into an account of the practitioner’s
choice. The Direct Deposit
Service application must be completed.
- Two Medicare
Claims Submission Agreements must be signed, witnessed, dated and returned
to New Brunswick Medicare. Once the agreements are approved, one agreement
will be maintained in the practitioner’s file at New Brunswick
Medicare and the other will be mailed to the practitioner. The two agreements
and the application form need to be completed and returned before claims
can be transmitted to New Brunswick Medicare. As specified in section
1.2 of the Registration Procedures, "practitioners are responsible
for forwarding a copy of the signed retention source document of their
first batch of claims submitted for Medicare payment".
