WCB-Alberta and the Alberta Medical Association work together for the mutual benefit of injured workers, employers and physicians. A new contract was ratified in 2015 and is binding until March 31, 2019.
A focus of this contract is report timeliness. Reports that are filed quickly ensure workers get the WCB benefits they are entitled to sooner and the return-to-work planning can start –ensuring they can get their life back to normal and return to work. With the new contracts, there are three fee increments –same-day reports, on-time reports and late reports.

Our goal is to implement a reliable, effective and efficient program for orthopaedic surgeons to provide high-quality assessment and treatment to injured workers.
Visiting specialist clinics (VSCs) provide timely access to surgical consultations or surgeries by medical specialists with unique and widely recognized expertise, resulting in an injured worker’s optimum healing, medical rehabilitation and return to work where possible.
