Which card to get
Choose a category to find out which type of BC Services Card is right for you.
Temporary immigrant status with MSP
Every eligible child must be enrolled in the Medical Services Plan (MSP). Most children are enrolled under their parent or guardian’s MSP account until they're 19 years old.
Newborns and children that are new to the province are issued a Non-Photo BC Services Card once enrolled in MSP.
If you are 75 or older and already have Medical Services Plan (MSP) coverage you can get either:
- BC Driver's Licence and Services Card - this combines your driver's licence and BC Services Card into one card
- Photo BC Services Card
If you're unable to make it to a government counter to have your photo taken, you can get a Non-Photo BC Services Card.
If you are physically unable to go to an ICBC driver licensing office because of a health condition, or you are studying outside of British Columbia, you might qualify for an exemption to get a non-photo BC Services Card.
