What is MOCAP?

The Medical On-Call Availability Program (MOCAP) was created in 2002. MOCAP provides a contractual framework to ensure the availability of physicians to respond to emergency situations for patients throughout the province. The current approximate overall value of the Program is $130 million per annum, province wide. 

The framework of the Program is described in Appendix G of the Physician Master Agreement. Currently, the levels of MOCAP are: 

  • On Site/On Call: $325,000 for 24/7/365 
  • Level 1: $225,000 for 24/7/365
  • Level 2: $165,000 for 24/7/365
  • Level 3: $70,000 for 24/7/365
  • Doctor of the Day: $400 per 24 hour period or $146,000 for 365 days
  • Call Back: $250 per incident, billed on case-by-case basis

MOCAP agreements are based on template contracts as laid out in the Physician Master Agreement. 

The Doctors of BC and government recently participated in a review of MOCAP and produced a report on May 14th 2013. More information​ on the work of the redesign panel and the Provincial MOCAP Review Committee will be forthcoming in spring 2014.
