New Fee Deal offered to Ontario’s doctors by Wynne government.

An improved compensation package to the province’s doctors is offered nearly four months after members of the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) voted down its previous contract proposal.
Eric Hoskins, the Health Minister revealed the details Wednesday morning of a new fee proposal to the Ontario Medical Association. which represents 42,000 physicians, residents and medical students.
The proposal targets top-billing doctors. It includes a 10 per cent clawback on the amount that an individual doctor bills OHIP above $1 million per year, plus a 20 per cent clawback on annual billings exceeding $2 million.
Health Ministry says that about 470 doctors billed more than $1 million in 2015-16.
The government has proposed a 10 per cent reduction to fees paid for items such as diagnostic x-rays and cataract surgery.
The current contract under which doctors are paid expires on March 31, 2017 that was imposed by the government after it failed to reach a negotiated deal with the OMA.
