The Ministry of Health is seeking an RMT to join the Health Care Practitioners Special Committee for Audit (HCPSCA).
The HCPSCA is established under Part 1 of BC’s Medicare Protection Act and is administered through the Ministry of Health Billing Integrity Program. HCPSCA conducts hearings in cases where health care practitioner claims in acupuncture, chiropractic, dentistry, massage therapy, midwifery, naturopathy, optometry, physical therapy, and podiatry are believed to have been inappropriately billed to the Medical Services Plan. The Committee makes orders for recovery of monies or de-enrollment where appropriate.
HCPSCA hearing panels consist of one government representative, one beneficiary representative, and up to three representatives of the profession in which the practitioner in question is authorized to practice.
There are currently 12 vacancies on HCPSCA, including one for an RMT. The Ministry of Health is accepting expressions of interest from candidates interested in serving on HCPSCA. All HCPSCA members serve for either one or two three-year terms and are appointed by Cabinet.
For detailed information about candidates’ competencies and attributes; time commitment; the process for submitting expressions of interest; vision, mandate, and goals of HCPSCA; and other details, see the HCPSCA Job Description.
The posting expires October 1, 2020.
