Foreword
The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is a national organization mandated to
coordinate the development and maintenance of a comprehensive and integrated health
information system for Canada. One way it fulfills this role is by forging alliances with
leaders in the health and health information fields.
Formed in 1993, CIHI brought together expertise and health information services from the
Hospital Medical Records Institute, The MIS Group, and selected components of Health
Canada and Statistics Canada. CIHI’s mission is based upon collaborative planning with all
provincial, territorial and federal governments, as well as all other major partners in
national health care services.
The Institute is responsible for providing accurate and timely information necessary to
establish sound health policies, manage the Canadian health system effectively, and create
public awareness of factors affecting good health.
The Average Payment per Physician Report, Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000 is
produced by Health Human Resources at CIHI to support health human resource planning
and utilization analysis. CIHI wishes to acknowledge the support of the Provincial Health
Ministries and the CIHI Expert Group on Physician-Related Databases in the development
and publication of this report.
Preface
The “Average Payment Per Physician Report, Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000” is the
fourth Average Payment Per Physician Report produced by CIHI since the National
Physician Database (NPDB) was moved to CIHI from Health Canada. Other previously
produced reports include: the “Average Payment Per Physician Report, Canada, 1996/97
to 1998/99” by CIHI in 2001,the “Average Payment Per Physician Report, Canada,
1993/94 to 1995/96” by CIHI in 1999, the “Average Payment Per Physician Report,
Canada, 1989/90 to 1993/94” by CIHI in 1997, the “Average Fee Payments for Full-Time
Physicians by Specialty, Canada by Province, 1985/86–1988/89” in 1991 and in 1988
under the title “Average Fee-Payment Per Physician and Physician/Population Ratios,
Canada by Province and Territory, 1981/82 to 1985/86 and 1986/87 Where Available” by
the Health Information Division at Health Canada. These publications contained figures
derived using data from the Medical Care Database (MCDB), the predecessor of the
National Physician Database (NPDB). In August 1995, both databases were transferred to
the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
The MCDB was developed following the implementation of the Medical Care Act in 1967
and was used to monitor the services provided, and payments made, by the
provincial/territorial medical insurance plans. The NPDB expanded on the MCDB by
including information on physician demographic and practice characteristics and the age
and gender of patients.

Average Payment Per Physician Report
Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000
Introduction
The National Physician Database (NPDB) has been used by the federal and
provincial/territorial governments, medical stakeholder groups and various private
organizations and researchers as a data source for the average payment patterns of
Canadian fee-for-service physicians. This information is used by federal and
provincial/territorial governments for program administration, evaluation and policy
development.
This publication provides information on average payments for fee-for-service physicians.
Average payment figures are presented for three categories:
·
per fee-for-service physicians receiving payments of at least $50,000 per year;
·
per fee-for-service physicians who receive at least one payment in each quarter; and
·
per full-time fee-for-service physicians.
Figures on the number of physicians, population per physician and physician per
population ratios for each of the three categories are also included.
These figures represent gross payments for fee-for-service physicians only. The
“operational costs” of the physicians’ medical office and any non fee-for-service payments
to physicians are excluded from the figures.
It should be noted that the 1998/1999 results were previously presented in the
publication entitled “Average Payment Per Physician Report, Canada, 1996/97 to
1998/99”. These previously produced results differ from the ones in this publication given
updated information for British Columbia for 1998/1999.

Average Payment Per Physician Report
Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000
Methodological Notes
Background
The National Physician Database (NPDB) provides information on the demographic characteristics
of physicians and their level of activity within the Canadian Medical Care System and is used by
governments, professional associations, consulting firms, pharmaceutical companies, researchers
and the media for medical human resource planning and utilization analysis. The establishment of
the database was approved in 1987 by the Conference of Deputy Ministers of Health upon the
recommendation of the Advisory Committee on Health Human Resources (ACHHR).
On August 1, 1995, the NPDB was moved to the Canadian Institute for Health Information
(CIHI). CIHI assumed the responsibilities of Health Canada in maintaining the database.
Previously, the NPDB was under the direction of the Working Group on Medical Care Statistics
(WGMCS) which was disbanded when the database was transferred to CIHI. An Expert Group
on Physician-Related Databases was convened in April, 1996 and advises CIHI on data quality,
methodology and product development matters relating to the NPDB and the Southam Medical
Database (SMDB).
The NPDB is a multi-year, multi-phase project. Phase 1, which is operational, contains data on
the demographic characteristics and activity levels of fee-for-service physicians. Information on
activity levels includes total payments, total services, average payment per physician and a
full-time equivalent physicians measurement. Phase 2 will add data on clinical activities
remunerated under alternative reimbursement plans (such as salaries, contracts and sessional
fees), and Phase 3 will contain data on non-clinical care activities of physicians (such as
teaching, research and administration).
Data Sources and Collection
NPDB Data
Data are derived from physician fee-for-service claims data submitted by the provincial
medical insurance programs to CIHI. The claims data and associated demographic data of the
physician and patient, are submitted in seven files, three of which are submitted annually and
four quarterly. Quarterly files are submitted usually within six months of the end of a quarter
and annual files within six months of the end of the fiscal year.
Files submitted include

Any files that do not meet appropriate layouts, as defined in the NPDB Functional
Specifications Manual, are returned to the provinces for correction and subsequent
re-submission.
For a complete description of the record layouts of these files please see the NPDB
Functional Specifications Manual, available from the Senior Analyst, NPDB, CIHI.
Average Payment Figures
Two utilization files are used to create average payment indicators, Utilization by Fee
Code and UPI File (40 File) and the Reciprocal Billing File (30 File). The Utilization by
Fee Code and UPI File contains all direct payments for fee-for-service claims by
physicians, laboratories and diagnostic facilities as well as services received by medical
care plan beneficiaries out-of-province/territory but not processed through the
reciprocal billing system (i.e. essentially services received out-of-Canada and in Quebec
as well as services excluded from the reciprocal billing agreement). The Reciprocal
Billing File contains data on out-of-province/territory services processed by the
Reciprocal Billing System. This means each province/territory sends data on services
their physicians provided to out-of-province/territory patients.
Table 1 details which provinces sent both the 30 and the 40 file and in which format,
e.g. quarterly or fiscal. If the file was submitted in a quarterly format, a check mark
(ü) will appear in the box. If the file was submitted fiscally, a “F” will appear in the
box. If the file was unavailable for that year, a “n/a” will appear in the box. An asterix
in the box indicates that some quarterly files are missing.

When reciprocal billing data are unavailable, average payment statistics are based
solely on direct physicians payments. When files are submitted fiscally instead of
quarterly, a threshold value of $30,000 is used to eliminate physicians who would
normally receive payments in less than all four quarters.

Type of Data: Date of Service vs. Date of Payment
Generally, utilization data files are submitted on a date of payment basis for
Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Manitoba and Saskatchewan
and on a date of service basis for Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British
Columbia. Provinces submitting on a date of service basis wait six months or until 98
percent of services are captured before submitting data files for processing. Please see
Table 2 for a yearly breakdown by province of the type of data file submission.

Prior to 1998/99 British Columbia submitted data on a date of payment basis.
Type of Data: Billing vs. Payment Data
All provinces, except Quebec, submit payment data. Billing data reflect the full amount
the physician billed the provincial Medical Services Plan for a particular fee code item.
Payment data reflect what was actually paid to the physician. The amount paid would
be the billed amount less any adjustments applied due to threshold values being met,
income capping or clawbacks. In Saskatchewan payment data exclude lump sum
payments made in lieu of retroactive amendments to the Payment Schedule. These
payments totalled $3.6 million in 1998/99 and $0.9 million in 1999/00. For
1998/1999, British Columbia payments include proration ($28.5 million) and payments
made by the ICBC ($9.1 million), the WCB ($25.4 million) as well as midwife referral
claims ($208,000) but exclude Northern and Isolation Allowances ($8.3 million). For
1999/2000, British Columbia payments include payments made by the ICBC ($8.9
million), the WCB ($27.7 million) as well as midwife referral claims ($350,000) but
exclude Northern and Isolation Allowances ($8.9 million).
Payment Mode: Level of Fee-for-Service Coverage
The average payment per physician data are based on physician payments/billings for
fee-for-service physicians only. The extent to which different forms of non fee-forservice payments are used by provinces to remunerate physicians has changed over
the past few years, see Table 3. Many alternative forms of payment, such as salaried
and sessional, have become more commonplace. The use of alternative payment plans
differs by province and by specialty.

Some physicians are primarily on one form of alternative reimbursement, but in special cases can bill fee-forservice. For example, In Ontario, physicians under alternative reimbursement plans can bill fee-for-service
when treating out-of-province patients and can bill fee-for-service when providing services to in-province
patient when the services they are providing are outside the scope of their alternative payment agreement
and the services are insured services. In Prince Edward Island, pediatricians on salary can bill fee-for-service
when they are on call or if there is a special request from the family for the physician to see their child.
Physicians under combination payment mode include physicians who are paid fee-for-service, salary and
sessional or any combination there of. May also include some other modes of payments such as capitation.
For 1998/99 Nova Scotia counts include 35 physicians receiving radiology/internal medicine/pathology
payments only and 47 physicians receiving psychiatric payments only. Nova Scotia counts for1999/00
include 38 physicians receiving radiology/internal medicine/pathology payments only and 62 physicians
receiving psychiatric payments only.
Payment mode distributions for Quebec are based on the distribution of payments.
Figures for Ontario reflect the number of physicians who are eligible to bill on a fee-for-service basis. These
counts will differ from those in Appendix E, which reflects physicians who have received payments in each
fiscal year. Please contact the Consultant, NPDB for further information.
Figures provided are estimates.

Population Data
Any population figures used in this publication are compiled by the Demography
Division of Statistics Canada. Statistics Canada prepares by special request, estimates
of the “covered population” for use with the NPDB data. The covered population
reflects people who received medical services paid for by provincial medical insurance
programs. The covered population is the total population less the members of the
Canadian Armed Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and inmates in federal
penitentiaries. These groups of people have their medical services covered by a federal
medical insurance program. Estimates are for October 1 of the given year and are
revised annually. See Appendix A for the net population data.

Data Quality
Error/Validation Routines
The NPDB files are derived from provincial administrative systems and edit checks are
done on the data by the province prior to processing the NPDB files. As CIHI has no
control over provincial edit checks, all data files received by CIHI are processed
through the NPDB error/validation routines. The error/validation routines are limited in
scope because the data cannot be confirmed against the source. Error/validation
routines include review of the total record counts, service counts and dollar amounts
for each file, checking each value in the fields against acceptable values, checking for
invalid fee codes, checking for Unique Physician Identifier (UPI) numbers with illogical
formats and logical review of the processed data. Any files that do not pass through
the error/validation routines are returned to the provinces for correction and
subsequent re-submission.
Additional Data Quality Checks
Service counts, dollar amounts and other economic indicators are validated against
previous years data and provincial annual reports.
Each province was given the opportunity to review their own data for validity and
consistency. This publication was reviewed by the provincial medical insurance plan
authorization officers prior to publication. For a complete list of the provincial
authorization officers, please see Appendix B.

Data Definitions
Full-Time Physician
A full-time physician is a physician with a full-time equivalent value of 1 or higher.
A description of the Full-Time Equivalent methodology is available upon request.
Province of Practice
Province of practice is the province where the physician is registered and receives
payments from the provincial medical care plan. Physicians may practice in more than
one province in a given fiscal year. For example, the physician may move from one
province to another during the fiscal year, or may provide services in two provinces on
a regular basis e.g. a physician providing services in provincial border areas such as
Ottawa-Hull. This can result in the double counting of physicians except at the national
level where physician counts are not based on province of practice.
Specialty
Physician specialty designations on the NPDB are assigned by the provincial medical
care plans and grouped within the NPDB to a national equivalent. Of the two
specialties, latest acquired certified specialty and plan payment specialty, the later is
used for the purposes of this report.
In three provinces, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and British Columbia, data for Public Health
Specialists are reported in the General Practice figures. For all provinces, uncertified
specialists, Community Medicine and Family Medicine are also grouped with General
Practice, except in Ontario where Community Medicine, Public Health, Occupational
Medicine and Pediatric Cardiology are received as Internal Medicine Specialists. Internal
Medicine includes the sub-specialties such as Cardiology, Gastroenterology,
Haematology, Rheumatology and Medical Oncology. Psychiatry includes
Neuropsychiatry. Neurology includes EEG specialists, and Physical Medicine includes
specialists in Electromyography. Specialists in the double specialty of
Ophthalmology/Otolaryngology are included with the Ophthalmologists.
Additionally in Prince Edward Island there are two plastic surgeons and two Urologists who
are grouped into the General Surgery category for privacy and confidentiality reasons.
Physicians in Quebec may have two different status’ which includes two different
specialties, one for in-province billings and one for billings outside Quebec. These two
different status’ show up on the 35 file (Physician Characteristics File) as two different
records with the same Unique Physician Identifier which results in duplicate records on
the file as far as individual physician’s are concerned. Only the second record is
retained on the NPDB system. This results in incorrect specialty assignment for some
payments. Approximately 100 physicians per year are affected by this incorrect
assignment.
For a complete listing of the specialty designations and their groupings please see
Appendix C.
CIHI 2002

Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000
Unique Physician Identifier (UPI)
Unique identifier created by the province using components of the physician’s first and
last names (scrambled using an algorithm), the physician’s date of birth, gender and
place of graduation.
Computations
Counts
All counts are based on the number of physicians receiving payments from each
provincial plan on a fee-for-service basis. Canada totals represent the number of
distinct UPIs regardless of province as physicians may be registered and receiving
payments in more than one province. Concurrently registered physicians will appear as
separate physicians in each province, but will only be counted as one physician in the
Canada totals. Therefore, Canada totals will not necessarily equal the sum of the ten
provinces. In cases where the physician is receiving payments in more than one
province, the physician’s specialty allocation is determined by the province with the
highest payments.
Average Payment
All average payment figures are created based on a fiscal year. Figures released in
annual provincial reports may differ if they use the calendar year rather than the fiscal
year. Average payment per physician is calculated using three different methods for:
·
fee-for-service physicians receiving payments of at least $50,000 in the fiscal year;
·
fee-for-service physicians receiving payments at least once per quarter; and
·
full-time fee-for-service physicians.
The purpose of creating statistics based on physicians receiving payments once per
quarter is to eliminate outliers, or to give a more realistic view of physician supply and
payments in Canada. This will exclude physicians who died or moved out of Canada
during the year. At the provincial level it will also exclude physicians who move
interprovincially during the year. National figures represent the total physician
population, including physicians moving interprovincially as long as they receive
payments in all four quarters, regardless of province.
For physicians concurrently registered in two or more provinces, the specialty from the
province with the highest payments is used for the national figures. This means
average payment figures will be reassigned at the national level. This is done to
prevent double counting of physicians.
Data Limitations
Average Payment per Physician: Gross vs. Net Payments
The average dollar figures shown in this report do not necessarily correspond to the
average gross professional incomes of physicians. Physicians may also obtain fee or
non-fee payments for professional services from additional sources, with the amounts
varying by province or specialty. Also, there are substantial interprovincial differences
10
CIHI 2002
Average Payment Per Physician Report
Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000
in expenses of practice as a proportion of gross professional incomes; generally,
expenses of practice tend to be lower in Quebec and the eastern provinces than in
Ontario and the western provinces. Consequently the ranking of provinces in terms of
average net professional incomes of physicians may differ from the ranking shown in
the tables of this report.
Specialty Designations
Provinces are requested to provide two types of specialty information on the NPDB
files—latest acquired certified specialty and payment plan specialty. The latest acquired
certified specialty is the most recently acquired specialty designation from the Royal
College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the Corporation professionelle des
médecins du Québec or the College of Family Physicians of Canada. The payment plan
specialty may or may not be different from the latest certified specialty and should
reflect the specialty area in which the physician provides the majority of their services.
The payment plan specialty is not provided by all provinces.
For the purposes of this report the payment plan specialty is used. Provinces may
provide latest certified specialty instead of plan payment specialty if they do not have
that information available. The latest certified specialty may or may not coincide with
specialty orientation of the work actually carried out by a physician.
Additionally, any physician who practised under more than one specialty during the
fiscal year was assigned the specialty under which he/she received the majority of
his/her payments.
In 1997-98, Newfoundland changed how it paid uncertified specialists. Prior to
October 1997, such physicians were coded as uncertified specialists and grouped with
Family Medicine for the purposes of the NPDB. Starting in October 1997,
Newfoundland’s uncertified specialists were allowed to bill as specialists and are now
reported as specialists within Average Payment per Physician reports.
CIHI average payment per physician statistics may vary from provincial “Annual
Statistics” because of differences in the way specialties are grouped. For example,
CIHI groups Neuropsychiatry in with Psychiatry whereas Quebec groups it with
Neurology. CIHI includes Electromyography with Physical Medicine whereas Quebec
does not. The sub-specialties which constitute CIHI’s Internal Medicine Specialty are
reported on individually in the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec annual statistics
report. Please refer to Appendix C for the CIHI Specialty groupings.

Canada, 1998/1999 and 1999/2000
Radiology and Pathology (Laboratory) Physicians
With the exception of Ontario, payments to radiologists, pathologists and laboratory
directors are excluded. Results for Ontario include payments to laboratory directors.
Payments for radiology and laboratory services performed by a physician, who is
neither a radiologist, pathologist nor laboratory director, are included. Medical care plan
fee-payments to radiologists or pathologists are nil or very small in the four Atlantic
provinces, relatively small in Quebec, but substantial in the other provinces. Omitting
such payments in all provinces improves interprovincial comparability. See Appendix D
for information on the extent of fee-for-service payments for radiology and laboratory
services that are included in the NPDB data files, but excluded from this report.
Privacy and Confidentiality
There are three safeguards utilized by CIHI to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the
physician data.
Unique Physician Identifier (UPI)
Physician names are not used on the provincial files. Instead a Unique Physician
Identifier (UPI) is generated by the province using components of the physicians name,
their date of birth, gender and place of M.D. graduation. The name portion of the UPI
is scrambled using an algorithm known only to the provinces. The UPI helps protect
the privacy and confidentiality of the physician and allows for the tracking of the
physician throughout their career in Canada.
NPDB Data Access/Release Policy
The release of data from the NPDB is governed by the NPDB Data Access/Release
Policy which was established by the provincial/territorial ministries of health and is
administered by CIHI. Depending on the type of client, the level of data aggregation,
the province and indicator of interest CIHI may not be able to release data to the client
without prior approval from the province(s)/territorie(s). Additionally, any cell counts of
less than five are suppressed and are aggregated to the next level.
CIHI Privacy and Confidentiality Policy
The release of any data from the NPDB whether as a regular product or as a custom
request is governed by the CIHI Privacy and Confidentiality Policy. CIHI’s pledge is to
“at all times respect personal privacy and safeguard individual record confidentiality
and system security”. There are eight principles (accountability, limiting collection,
limiting use, limiting disclosure, consent, integrity, security and openness) which
govern the policy and are applied in conjunction with more detailed policies on data
integrity and systems security, data linkage, institutional-level confidentiality,
microdata disclosure, surveys and personal privacy. For a complete description of the
CIHI Privacy and Confidentiality Policy please contact the Manager, Health Human
Resources, CIHI.

Products and Services
There are three types of products that are generated from the NPDB—ad hoc requests,
publications and special projects. Ad hoc requests are generally short queries that do not
require major programming resources. Services counts and dollars amounts by specific fee
codes or procedures are the most common form of ad hoc request. Most ad hoc requests
can be handled through standard reports that are generated annually. Publications
currently available include:

Radiology and laboratory services supplied to CIHI for use in NPDB are not uniform or
complete. For this reason the data are not routinely used in the NPDB publications. The
following notes were provided by the provincial medical insurance plans regarding the
radiology and laboratory services included on the NPDB file submissions.
Newfoundland
+
+
No laboratory services data are supplied to NDPB as these services are paid through
the hospital funding.
Physicians can be paid on a fee-for-service basis for interpretation services on certain
diagnostic services such as EEG, ECGs, etc. These services would be included in the
NPDB file submissions.
Prince Edward Island
+
+
No laboratory services data are supplied to NDPB as these services are paid through
the hospital funding.
Radiologists interpretation fees are included in the NPDB file submissions.
Nova Scotia
+
+
No laboratory services data are supplied to NDPB as these services are paid through
the hospital funding.
The majority of radiology billings are not included in NPDB file submissions. For Nova
Scotia, the majority of radiology billings are not included in fee-for-service earnings.
New Brunswick
+
+

the hospital funding.
All radiology services are excluded in the NPDB file submissions.
Quebec
+
+

Radiology services provided by physicians in private practice are included in the NPDB
file submissions.
Ontario
+
+
Approximately 50 percent of all laboratory services are funded through OHIP and
therefore are included in the NPDB file submissions. The remaining 50 percent are
funded via Public Health (1 percent) and Hospital global budgets (49 percent).
Information on Radiology services was not available.
CIHI 2002
D–1
Manitoba
+
+
Laboratory services provided in the NPDB file submissions are those provided by
privately owned fee-for-service laboratories. Laboratory services provided in urban/rural
facilities are not included in the NPDB file submissions.
Radiology services submitted include all private radiology services and all urban facility
radiology services. Rural facility radiology services, approximately 11 percent of the
total dollar value for radiology services, are not included in NPDB file submissions.
Saskatchewan
§
Since 1993/94, the only laboratory services included in the NPDB file submissions are
common in-office laboratory services provided by physicians other than pathologists.
Responsibility for private laboratory services provided by specialists in pathology was
transferred to District Health Boards in October 1993 and no longer funded on a feefor-service basis.
§
Facility based radiology services which are funded through District Health Boards are
excluded from the NPDB file submissions, as well as radiology services provided
through the Screening Program for Breast Cancer.
Alberta
+
Up to July 1, 1995 only non-hospital based laboratory services were included.
+
Only non-facility based radiology services are included in NPDB file submissions.
