Policy section content
Section detail

Historically, fees for medical aid have been determined by the Board, by means of a Board Decision. The function of negotiation with various health care associations to discuss and set fees and standards is an administrative one, and would more appropriately be carried out by the CEO, rather than the Board.

POLICY

Policy section content
Section detail

The authority to negotiate and administer fees for medical aid furnished by any health care professional is delegated to the CEO, rather than the present method, which requires a Board Decision.
