If you are a physician who provides professional services to one of B.C.’s health service authorities, we have established a streamlined process to determine whether or not you are required to register with WorkSafeBC.

You may apply to register with WorkSafeBC when:

  • You provide your services as an independent contractor under a service contract
  • Your revenue comes from providing sessional contracts
  • You receive fee-for-service payments from Medical Services Plan, WorkSafeBC, or ICBC
  • You operate a private practice

You may not require coverage as a Physician if you receive a T4 Statement of Remuneration or you provide your services to a health services authority under a salary agreement.

To determine your status as a Physician, please complete the Physician registration form.  Completed forms can be emailed to
