As required under the 2014 Physician Master Agreement (PMA), a review of the Medical On-Call/Availability Program (MOCAP) was undertaken to ensure that physician call groups are compensated appropriately and consistently among health regions. The review and redesign was done by the Provincial MOCAP Review Committee (PMRC) chaired by Eric Harris, QC, and including members from the Ministry of Health, Health Authorities, and Doctors of BC.
The final report is now complete. Call groups will be notified by their Health Authority of the outcome of the redesign and of any change to their MOCAP levels beginning the week of December 10. Revised MOCAP Agreements are due to take effect April 1, 2019.
