Fee Code Advisory Committee

Fee Code Advisory Committee (FCAC)

For the first time, PEI physicians now have a means to add or change fee codes – outside formal Master Agreement negotations. This creates a new opportunity for physicians to identify ways in which fee codes can better reflect the reality of how we currently practice medicine. Effective immediately, physicians can apply for a new fee code, a fee code change, a change to the preamble or request a fee code to be removed from the schedule. 
 

FCAC User Guide 

It is essential that each applicant carefully review the FCAC User Guide prior to beginning an application.  This will ensure the applicant has gathered the necessary information and sought input from the right people. The user guide supports creating a strong application and will help avoid an application being returned incomplete, creating a delay in the process. The guide provides an overview of how the application process works, what is expected of the applicant and the scoring criteria used when applications are reviewed.
