New MSP Enrolment Policies in Effect Feb. 22, 2018
The Ministry of Health website and the Group Procedure Guide have now been updated to reflect new policies relating to the BC Services Card.
Effective Feb. 22, 2018, new and returning adult BC residents must complete two steps to enrol in MSP and obtain a BC Services Card. If these steps are not complete and a BC Services Card is not obtained, new members won't be added to your MSP Group.
Employers, unions and pension plans may administer Medical Services Plan (MSP) benefits on behalf of their members and members' dependents. This is referred to as a group plan. Each group plan has an administrator who is responsible for managing this group on behalf of the members enrolled under the group. It is important that group plan administrators know how to manage the group plan including what forms need to be completed, how to add and remove members on your group plan and how to pay your group plan premium invoice.
