We are pleased to announce that the CDSBC Board has re-elected public board member Mr. Carl Roy to serve as Board Chair for 2020/21.
Carl brings more than four decades of experience in the health sector, and worked with multiple regulatory bodies throughout his career. He has a strong governance background and demonstrated success in improving board performance.
He will continue to lead the Board through the completion of the commitments in the Action Plan submission to the Minister of Health, as well as transitions related to the Ministry of Health's recommendations from the Steering Committee on Modernization of Health Professional Regulation.
As chair, Carl will continue to partner with the Board and with Registrar and CEO Dr. Chris Hacker to ensure public protection, regulatory excellence, and optimal health for patients and the public.
The Ministry of Health is seeking a dentist member to join Health Care Practitioners Special Committee for Audit Hearings (HCPSCA). The deadline to apply is October 1, 2020.
The HCPSCA is established under Part 1 of the Medicare Protection Act and is administered through the Ministry of Health Billing Integrity Program. HCPSCA conducts hearings in cases where health care practitioner claims (acupuncture, chiropractic, dentistry, massage therapy, midwifery, naturopathy, optometry, physical therapy and podiatry) are believed to have been inappropriately billed to the Medical Services Plan and makes orders for recovery of monies or de-enrollment where appropriate.
We are sharing this opportunity on behalf of the Ministry of Health. Please click on the button below to learn more and apply online.
