Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2016-11-15


Over 80% of primary care services within Winnipeg are provided by independent, fee-for-service (FFS), primary care providers. While some FFS clinics participate in the Physician Integrated Network (PIN) initiative, most do not. This is the traditional model of primary care service delivery and remains the dominant model in Winnipeg. This model includes clinics providing full service family practice as well as walk-in clinics.

For more information on the Fee-For-Service (FFS) model of primary care, please read section 1. Non-PIN FFS (Non-Physician Integrated Network (PIN) Fee-For-Service (FFS)) in the Models of Primary Care Delivery concept.
