Expedited Surgical Facilities Services

When people have an injury at work and need elective, day-care procedures, we may refer them to our network of Expedited Surgical Facilities Services providers. This network is made up of providers who have long-term contracts with us. These contracts come up for bidding periodically.

Overview of services

Under our Expedited Surgical Facilities Services program, surgeons perform expedited, elective, day-care surgical procedures on injured workers. These services include nursing and support staff, medications, supplies, and equipment.

The surgical facilities must be accredited as a Class 1 non-hospital medical/surgical facility by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C.

Becoming a provider

Our Expedited Surgical Facilities Services contracts come up for bidding every few years. To become a provider, you need to apply when the bidding process begins.

We post notifications on Bid Opportunities when contracts are up for bidding. All the information you need, including how to submit your bid, will be available in the posted documents.

Through Bid Opportunities, you can also sign up for automatic notifications whenever one of these bid opportunities is posted.

  • Paperless invoicing for providers coming soon

    In the coming months, we will be introducing a new online portal for health care providers who currently submit paper invoices by fax or mail. The new portal is designed to make submitting invoices more convenient and efficient, and is part of our ongoing work to improve our online services to health care providers.
