Chronic Pain Assessment and Management

New fee codes have been introduced over the past year for assessment and follow-up of patients with chronic pain. The fee codes are listed in the Payment Schedule for Insured Services Provided by a Physician.

The unavailability of the Algo-MD course, which is required to bill fee codes 205B/206B, has been brought to the attention of the Family Practice Executive and the Tariff Committee.  At the moment there is no alternative course(s).  We will keep you informed of any updates.
