SMA Fee Guide for Uninsured Services
The SMA regularly publishes its SMA Fee Guide (uninsured services schedule) to provide guidance to physicians billing for uninsured services such as:
- Insurance medicals
- Medical-legal reports
- Photocopies of charts
- Workers’ Compensation Board and SGI reports
- Medical services provided to RCMP members and out-of-country residents
For the convenience of physicians and their billing staff, the fee descriptions and rules in this schedule closely mirror those in the insured Payment Schedule. The SMA has also created a printable poster that clinics can use to inform their patients of a number of uninsured services.
The SMA has created a template medical certificate for physicians to report patient illness or injuries (for school, employment or other purposes).
Third Party Forms
The SMA Uninsured Services Committee has decided that:
- A patient’s employer pays for any information requested from a physician.
- A physician only reports on patients’ physical status, not on their ability to perform their job.
