As outlined in Schedule “Q” of the 2017-2022 MOA, the Rural Community Comprehensive Care Bonus (RCCCB) came into effect on September 30, 2022. Applications will be accepted on or after September 30, 2023 (covering the bonus period September 30, 2022 – September 29, 2023) which is the first full year of the new RCCCB program. The RCCCB replaces the FFS Family Medicine Rural Retention Bonus (RRB). The RRB remains in place for FFS specialists.
An eligibility flow chart has been developed to assist you with determining if your practice meets the criteria of the new bonus.
The NLMA will send a reminder on September 1, 2023, to complete your application, which must be submitted by December 31, 2023.
