Remuneration
Remuneration
Full-time salary hours are defined as 37.5 hours per week. On call services are provided over and above these hours.
Salary: Salaried physicians enter an employee/employer relationship with Health PEI. In this model, Health PEI hires a physician under a contract of employment which assigns the hours worked, duties, and responsibilities. As part of this model, physicians are also offered (if conditions are met) an additional payment valued at 31% of their base salary. As an employee you have access to a suite of benefits, including health and dental, paid vacation and sick days, life insurance, RRSP matching, and more.
Fee-for-Service: This payment model is common across Canada. The model allows physicians to be compensated for each service provided, based on a fee scheduled within the Master Agreement. It provides physicians with more flexibility in terms of how, when, what volume, and in what way they provide their services. As income earned on a fee-for-service basis may be claimed through a professional corporation, this modality may provide tax advantages. Most physicians using this model are required to pay an overhead fee (on average 25% of overall billings). Fee-for-service physicians do have access to negotiated benefits programs through the Master Agreement, but do not have paid employment benefits such as vacation, health and dental, or RRSP matching through the provincial health authority.
Contract for Service: The less common modality, but preferred by some, is the Contract for Service where physicians are compensated on an hourly basis, as per the Master Agreement. Contract for Service physicians have access to benefits through the Master Agreement (i.e. parental leave), but do not have paid benefits such as vacation, health and dental, or RRSP matching. The hourly rate increase includes an amount for “in lieu of benefits” to compensate for those benefits. As income earned on a contract basis may be claimed through a professional corporation, this modality may provide tax advantages.
Information related to payment modalities, including salary, contract for service, fee-for-service tariff of fees, including other remuneration information can be found in the Master Agreement.
