The president of Doctors Nova Scotia says physicians want to extend virtual care for their patients.
Dr. Robyn MacQuarrie says it's allowed her to be more efficient during the pandemic.
The province implemented temporary billing codes to allow doctors to charge for telephone and online visits earlier this year but that plan is set to expire at the end of the month.
MacQuarrie said doctors want to see them extended.
"We're hoping that we're going to hear soon about what's going to happen," she said. "If you're going to bring all these people in, it's going to require a lot of changes."
She says there are more opportunities for doctors to utilize virtual care as the months progress, especially with winter weather on the horizon.
