The Locum Support Program is funded by a Contribution Agreement between the Yukon Medical Association (YMA) and the Yukon Government (YG). It provides finanical assistance to Yukon physicians for usual and reasonable locum physician expenses.
Please read the Locum Support Fund guidelines (pdf) carefully.
If any questions arise contact the Fund Manager for clarification before starting your locum.
Reimbursement of any expected and reasonable expenses is not guaranteed under this program. The locum physician and Yukon physician must negotiate which expenses will be reimbursed. Signing the Locum Contract Checklist indicates that both parties are in agreement with the terms.
All requests for licensing information should be directed to the Yukon Medical Council. Please allow 6 weeks for this process to be completed.
All requests for hospital privileges should be directed to Sarah Edwards, at the Yukon Hospital Corporation. Please allow 6 weeks for this process to be completed.
As a locum working in the Yukon you are eligible for full CMPA reimbursement for the month(s) you billed the Yukon Health Care Insurance Plan (YHCIP), BUT only if you will not receive or have not received CMPA reimbursement from your home jurisdiction for the months in question.
For YMA reimbursement please download and review the CMPA Guidelines (pdf), date and sign the one-page document and submit to the YMA.
