Paying Your Invoice
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.
Each month you will receive an invoice detailing premiums for the next month and any adjustments for your employees. Your invoice is generally mailed to you during the last week of the month.
You can pay MSP premiums for your group plan:
If full payment is not received by the due date on your invoice, your account will become overdue and interest will be charged.
There is no volume discount available to group plan administrators.
To have your monthly payments automatically withdrawn from your bank account an authorized individual must complete and sign the Application for Pre-Authorized Debit (PDF) form.
Submit the completed form and a void cheque (don’t staple to form) by either:

To pay your MSP premiums using a bill payment service you need to add a payee for MSP to your bank account. To add a new payee to your bank account you need to know our payee name and your account number.
You should be able to find us listed with your bank under "MSP Group-RSBC".
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 account number is listed on the top of your MSP invoice (e.g. X34012345678).
Payments are accepted by cash, debit, cheque, bank draft or money order made payable to the Minister of Finance. Credit card payments aren't accepted.
Once your payment is received, it’ll normally be applied to your account within three business days.
You can make payments by cheque, bank draft or money order made payable to the Minister of Finance through the mail. Do not send cash.
You should send your payment at least eight days before the due date if you’re sending it through Canada Post.
If you administer multiple group plan accounts, you should pay each account with a separate cheque. You can include multiple payments in the same envelope, if you include a copy of the payment coupon portion of the invoice for each account.
If the payment amount differs from the amount indicated on the invoices or your enclosed directions, we will use our discretion in applying your payment(s) to the accounts involved.
