  • 1968-2011

The series consists of applications, reports, forms, correspondence, printouts from government databases, and budget information received, maintained and created by the Ministry of Health and its successors.

The series documents the provision and monitoring of Medical Services Plan (MSP) funding for physician and health care practitioner services through alternative payment agreements to regional health authorities. The functions of the Alternative Payment program were controlled by the Physicians’ Compensation branch.

The Alternative Payments program is a method of funding physician services by the Medical Services Plan through means other than the fee-for-service method. The program is designed to secure sufficient access to care in situations where fee-for-service arrangements may not guarantee physicians the financial support or stability to be able to provide needed care, such as in teaching hospitals or community-based services in rural areas. There are two models for alternative payments : service agreements and sessional arrangements. Service agreements consist of a contract between the Ministry of Health and a Health Authority which retains physicians under contract or direct employment. Sessional arrangements are based on contracts between a Health Authority and a physician.

Records consist of alternative payment agreement accountability records case files. Records regard reviewing applications from regional health authorities for funding for programs within their geographic areas of responsibility; developing and monitoring agreements with regional health authorities; monitoring programs funded by alternative payments methods; and processing payments to regional health authorities in accordance with approved agreements. The series also include some files with related policies, procedures and forms.

  • 1988-2012

This series consists of committee files, executive records and publications related to home and community care programs conducted by the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Health Services in conjunction with the Provinces Health Authorities from 1988-2012.

Due to numerous reorganizations within the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Health Services, there is evidence that earlier records changed custody several times and may have been created or received by multiple groups over time.

The Home and Community Care Branch was responsible for the development and implementation of legislation, policy, guidelines and licencing to protect the health and safety of people receiving care in licensed residential care facilities. Files also regard end of life care or palliative care, assisted living, home care, dementia, building codes for care facilities, adult guardianship, and community care.

Hospital Insurance Service research files

  • GR-2585
  • Series
  • 1953-1977

These are files of the Research Division of the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service. In 1948 an "Act to provide for the Establishment of Hospital Insurance and Financial Aid to Hospitals" was passed. Accordingly, the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service was established as a third branch of the Department of Health and Welfare and tasked with administering the premium payment plan which provided hospital care benefits for acute illness at the standard ward level to residents of the province. The role of the B.C.H.I.S. quickly grew to include hospital financing, inspection, and advisory services related to hospital construction. The name of the branch changed from British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service to Hospital Programs in 1975, as part of a reorganization within the Ministry of Health. In the early years the B.C.H.I.S. was also responsible for the administration of the Welfare Institutions Licensing Act (transferred to the Dept. of Social Welfare in 1950) and the Provincial Infirmaries (transferred to the Health Branch in 1964). The Research Division was created in the second year of operation of the B.C.H.I.S. In the annual report of BCHIS for 1950 the responsibilities of the Research Division are listed as "this branch of the Service supplied all statistics necessary to the Service, which included compilation of progress and annual reports, surveys, and other information". In the 1951 annual report this description is broadened slightly, "maintained monthly progress reports, compiled statistics concerning hospitalization experience, and conducted special studies on matters related to the Service". There are two series of files, one series containing correspondence with individual hospitals and one series containing subject files. The first series in this unit, the bulk of these files, relate to individual hospitals and contain correspondence of the division with the hospitals, news releases of the ministry relating to the hospital, reports of the division relating to the individual hospitals and other research material relating to individual hospitals. The bulk of this series is from 1953-1965, with some material as late as 1975. The second series of files are subject files of the Research Division on such topics as rehabilitation, mental health, indian affairs, morbidity, social welfare, and pediatrics.
