CMPA

Please see this June 4, 2020 joint statement from PARIM and PGME regarding CMPA payment.

As per the Collective Agreement, Medical Residents are required to maintain Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) professional liability and malpractice coverage. Non-medical Residents are required to maintain appropriate professional liability and malpractice insurance acceptable to the Employer.

While the Collective Agreement stipulates that the employer is responsible for paying all but the lesser amount of 25% or $625.00 of Residents’ CMPA fees, CMPA is no longer accepting third party payments as of June 2020. This means that, as of July 2020, Residents will need to pay CMPA directly, and then be reimbursed by Shared Health.

In accordance with the PARIM Collective Agreement, residents will be reimbursed appropriately whether you choose the annual or monthly pay option. However, the timing of the reimbursement will depend on your method of payment. 

According to CMPA, the 2020 annual fee for Residents and Fellows in Manitoba is $1764/year or $174/month (whether you moonlight or not). Please see PDF https://www.cmpa-acpm.ca/static-assets/pdf/membership/fees-and-payment/2020cal-e.pdf
