In British Columbia, public health insurance is called the Medical Services Plan or simply MSP. It covers the cost of medically-necessary insured doctor services.
Health Insurance BC administers MSP on behalf of the Ministry of Health and can answer your questions about medical coverage.
Families in British Columbia can take advantage of Health Insurance BC to protect themselves and their loved ones.
As of January 1, 2018, the B.C provincial healthcare premium rate has been reduced to half of their previous amount. Furthermore, a family whose adjusted income is from $26,000 and below does not have to pay a premium.
The B.C. provincial health insurance plan is made up of three parts as follows:
- • Medical Services Plan (MSP)
- • Pharmacare, and
- • Fair Pharmacare.
