The BC Ministry of Health has introduced a number of new contract options for BC’s physicians. They provide more choice for established and new-to-practice family physicians who want to move away from Fee-for-Service (FFS) and practice in a different way, and support for physicians whose Fee-for-Service practices continue to be significantly destabilized due to conditions resulting from COVID-19. Group contracts will also continue to be offered to anesthesiologists and ER physicians.

The Ministry consulted with Doctors of BC during the development of the contracts. If you have questions after reading the material on this page, please contact Doctors of BC staff at
