Mini Profiles

Auditing supports

Another important audit tool is your Mini Practice Profile. Produced annually and available on the Doctors of BC website, your profile helps educate you on your pattern of billing. Mini Practice Profiles are provided to all fee-for-service (FFS) physicians (after 1 year FFS earnings of at least $1,000), based on the claims data submitted for payment to the MSP. They are designed to be user friendly and to provide a good comparison of a physician’s practice with other colleagues in their comparison group. Adjustments of the data have become increasingly more sophisticated. Comparisons not only involve age and gender distribution, but also comparisons based on burden of illness and continuity of care.
