Dr Sarah Newbery, a family doctor at Marathon, said urban team models had “compensated for the conditions of competition in a way that penalised rural communities,” adding that unequal conditions of competition were needed to recruit doctors for demanding practices in geographically isolated areas. Emergency and inpatient care are not as well paid as for recent team models, said Dr. Peter Hutten-Czapski, who practices at Temiskaming Shores. The locum coverage is more generous under the RNPGA than other team-based models. But at $775 for the basic daily stock exchange, it is still below the market price. This amount does not adequately reimburse doctors for travel time, according to the doctors interviewed. 1 RURAL &NORTHERN PHYSICIAN GROUP AGREEMENT -HIGHLIGHTS- This document is for informational purposes only and does not replace or replace the contract in any way.
