MEDICAL SERVICES COMMISSION
Financial Statement for the fiscal year
ended March 31, 2001

UNAUDITED SCHEDULE OF PAYMENTS BY THE MEDICAL SERVICES PLAN TO SOCIETIES, HOSPITALS, HEALTH DEPARTMENTS, HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS, PRACTITIONERS, AND CLINICS FOR INSURED SERVICES.

This schedule of payments is published in compliance with the Financial Information Act and B.C. Regulation 131/87 and lists the gross payments made for the cost of insured services paid to each individual account of at least $10,000 during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2001. All other accounts are shown as a consolidated total.

Payments are reported under the practitioner who performed the services, except when the practitioner is associated with a hospital, laboratory, or vested interest laboratory. These payments are reported under the facilities billing the service. Payments made on behalf of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and the Workers' Compensation Board are not included in the payment amount. Payments made to physicians for services referred by registered midwives are not included in the payment amount.

Persons reading these data should understand that they provide only a record of gross payments. Since practitioners must pay the expenses of their practice out of this gross amount, no calculation of a practitioner's net income can be made from such figures.

The information provided is listed alphabetically by person, group, clinic, or hospital, and reflects the total amounts paid to a particular account. No conclusions can be drawn from these figures about the relative net income of any practitioner since overhead varies greatly from practitioner to practitioner, and since in some instances the recorded figure is a payment for the services of a number of practitioners.

The Chair and all staff of the Commission and the Medical Services Plan are public servants. Therefore, details of employee salaries, wages, travel expenses and payments to suppliers for administrative services are included in the Public Accounts of the Province of British Columbia.
