Health Supplements & Programs
The Health Supplements and Programs category provides information about health supplements and programs that are available through the BC Employment and Assistance (BCEA) Program to assist with specific individual health needs and circumstances.
BCEA recipients who meet the Ministry of Health’s residency requirements are provided with medical coverage through the Medical Services Plan, and no deductible PharmaCare coverage. Additionally, specified health supplements are provided to all BCEA recipients who meet the eligibility criteria for each supplement. General health supplements are provided to specific categories of recipients only (e.g. persons with disabilities or persons with persistent multiple barriers) who meet the eligibility criteria for each supplement. Eligibility for health supplements is determined on an individual basis.
Detailed information is available by clicking on the appropriate topic within the Health Supplements and Programs Category (left hand menu).
