FPA is an assessment rendered by a GP/FP physician with additional training and/or experience in sport medicine, allergy, pain management, sleep medicine, addiction medicine (including methadone) or care of the elderly (age 65 or older). The assessment must satisfy, at a minimum, all of the requirements of an intermediate assessment.
No other consultation, assessment, visit or counselling service is eligible for payment when rendered the same day as one of A917, A927, A937, A947, A957 or A967 to the same patient by the same physician.
E079 is not eligible for payment with any FPA.
Physicians should be prepared to provide to the ministry documentation demonstrating training and/or experience on request
