“According to the 2010 National Physician Survey (NPS), the proportion of physicians who are paid primarily by the fee-for-service method continues to decline. In 2010, 42% of physicians reported receiving 90% or more of their professional earnings via fee-forservice payments. This is down from 48% in 2007, 51% in 2004 and 68% in 1990.”
The National Physician Survey is produced by the CFPC, the CMA, and the Royal College. Our data is drawn from surveys sent to every licensed physician in Canada as well as to all Canadian medical residents and students.
