The Community Longitudinal Family Physician (CLFP) Payment recognizes the additional, non-clinical responsibilities required to provide ongoing, coordinated, longitudinal care for which fee-for-service physicians are not compensated.
The CLFP Payment for 2020 is automatically remitted by MSP Teleplan to eligible physicians in two installments.
- The first installment of $3,000 was paid in summer 2020.
- The first batch of payments for the winter installment been processed and will appear on the Dec 15 remittance statement under Adjustment Code CP.
- The payment amount of the second installment will be based on the number and complexity of patients associated with each eligible family physician.
An eligible physician will receive a total annual payment amount of no less than $3,000 and up to $12,000, with exact payment amount per individual physician based on the number and complexity of Majority Source of Care (MSOC) patients associated with the physician in the MSP database.
New to Practice Physicians
Previously, new to practice family physicians were not eligible for the CLFP Payment based on its requirement for physicians to be the Majority Source of Care (MSOC) provider for 50 or more patients in the previous calendar year. Based on physician feedback, the GPSC updated the CLFP Payment to support the recruitment and retention of family physicians. New to Practice family physicians who meet the requirements will be eligible for a new to practice CLFP Payment of $3000.
Eligible new to practice family physicians will receive an email in January 2021 from GPSC with instructions on how to claim their payment.
