2023-24 CME Benefit

The 2023-24 CME Benefit program provides a benefit of $2,200 per physician and will be administered by the AMA. This program is for CME expenses incurred between April 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024. The program parameters for this program will be similar to the AH-administered program. 

Physicians who have received a payment under a Physician Support Program are not entitled to receive a duplicate or comparable payment, or payment in kind, from the Government of Canada, another provincial government, or AHS corresponding to the same matter. 

A reminder that to receive any of the benefit programs, physicians will need to be full members of the AMA or have paid an administration fee equal to full membership. Renew your membership as soon as possible to ensure there are no payment delays.

Tip for an easy and quick CME claim 

One simple tip that will allow most physicians to claim the full CME allotment each year, is to submit a claim for CPD/MOC credits. Physicians can claim $50 per MAINPRO+ or MOC CPD credit earned during the eligible benefit period (April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024, for the 2023/24 CME Benefit). Based on the current credit requirements for MAINPRO+ (a minimum 25 CPD credits each year and 250 over five years) and MOC (a minimum of 40 credits each year and 400 over five years), many physicians will earn enough CPD credits to claim the full benefit amount each year.

Simply log into the College of Family Physicians of Canada website or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada website to get a report on the CPD credits earned during the eligible period.
