Mini practice profiles for 2021

Your 2021 mini practice profile is now available to you exclusively on the Doctors of BC website (login required). The profile provides you with informative statistics based on the MSP fee-for-service payments made to you for services provided in the 2021 calendar year, including any settlements or retroactive payments issued as of 31 March 2022. 

Why view your profile? 

This information allows you to monitor your MSP billing in comparison to your peer group. It also allows you to view your billing patterns, identify any flags, and make proactive changes, if needed, which may reduce your risk of an MSP audit. 

Also in the data are fee-for-service claims paid by MSP on behalf of ICBC and WorkSafeBC. The profiles are an accurate reflection of claims submissions and payments made in the claims record that identified you as the physician who provided the service, or in the case of referred services, identified you as the referring practitioner.

Need more information?

If you have questions or need help understanding your profile, please contact Tara Hamilton, senior advisor, Audit and Billing at or 604 638-6058 (toll free 1 800 665-2262).

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
