Pay Your Premiums
MSP premiums are eliminated January 1, 2020. MSP coverage is still mandatory for all B.C. residents.
MSP premium debts from before January 1, 2020 remain payable.
The final MSP premium for December 2019 will be billed and mailed in November 2019.
If you have a pre-authorized debit or an auto-pay set up for MSP with your credit card or financial institution, remember to cancel it for December 1, 2019.
B.C. residents must pay any outstanding Medical Services Plan (MSP) premiums they owe.
You can pay your outstanding MSP premiums:
- by pre-authorized debit
- through your bank or financial institution
- online using your credit card
- at a government office
- by mail

Some banks and financial institutions will use a variation of the payee name above. If you can't find us, call your bank for assistance.
Your MSP account number is listed on the top of your invoice (e.g. X36012345678).
You can use your Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Debit Mastercard or Visa Debit to make a payment:
