The Medical Services / Medical Claims data is an administrative health database consisting of medical (hospital/physician) claims for physician visits in offices, hospitals, and outpatient departments; fee-for-service components for tests such as lab and x-ray procedures performed in offices and hospitals; and payments for on-call agreements. In Manitoba, fee-for-service providers must submit claims to Manitoba Health for reimbursement and a small proportion of salaried physicians also submit evaluation claims (shadow billing).
