Annualized Clinical ARP Model

In an Annualized Clinical ARP model, compensation is based on the number of physician full-time equivalents (FTEs) required to deliver the direct and indirect clinical services within the Clinical ARP. A FTE is a time-based unit of measure (e.g., hours per year). This annualized model compensates physicians for the delivery of program services based on a pre-determined payment rate to targeted patient groups per FTE per year. Annualized Clinical ARPs are the most common within Alberta.
