Achieving and maintaining optimal health is important for all British Columbians and we are making every effort to facilitate access to information and services that will help you achieve your goals.

About B.C.'s Health Care System

Ensuring that the right information and services are available to B.C.'s health care consumers and providers at the right time is a tall order. It requires cooperation between many different groups focusing on different aspects of care. Understanding how the system works is the first step in receiving the information and services that you need.

Health & Drug Coverage

B.C's publicly-funded health care system ensures that all eligible B.C. residents have access to medically necessary health care services through the Medical Services Plan and to eligible prescription medications, medical supplies, and pharmacy services through the PharmaCare program.

Accessing Health Care

A world-class health care system is only something to brag about if residents can access services in a timely and cost-effective manner. Learn how you can find a healthcare service provider near you and how you can apply for financial aid when you need to travel for medical purposes.
