The Longitudinal Family Physician (LFP) payment model is an alternative to the fee-for-service model and supports family physicians who provide longitudinal family medicine care.

Family physicians are compensated for spending extra time with patients, especially those with complex needs, such as patients with mental-health conditions, and seniors. For more information, refer to the Longitudinal Family Physician (LFP) Payment Model.

To enrol in the LFP Payment Model, you must create a bill with a specific fee code (98000) and diagnosis code (L23) and submit it to Health Insurance BC (HIBC) via Teleplan. You must submit it five business days before you submit any claims under the LFP Payment Model.

📌 Note: To continue enrolment, you must submit the registration code annually between January 1 and March 31. If the code is not submitted by March 31 of a given calendar year, no subsequent payments will occur under the LFP Payment Model until the code is submitted. For more information, refer to the Ministry of Health's Longitudinal Family Physician Plan Payment Schedule.
