See SSC Fee Guide before billing these fees.
Group Medical Visits provide medical care in a group setting. Group Medical Visits are an effective way of leveraging existing resources; simultaneously improving quality of care and health outcomes, increasing patient access to care and reducing costs.
Sizing it Up
Group Medical Visits can offer patients an additional health care choice, provide them support from other patients and improve the patient-physician interaction. Physicians can also benefit by reducing the need to repeat the same information many times and free up time for other patients. Appropriate patient privacy is maintained and typically these benefits result in improved satisfaction for both patients and physicians.
Things to Know
The Group Medical Visit is not appropriate for advice relating to the particular medical needs of a single patient. It applies only when all members of the group are receiving medically required treatment (i.e. each member of the group is a patient). The Group Medical Visits are not intended for activities related to attempting to persuade a patient to alter diet or other lifestyle behavioural patterns other than in the context of the individual medical condition.
