Medical Services Plan of BC

Learn about Medical Services Plan coverage for you, your spouse and/or eligible dependant(s).


The Medical Services Plan (MSP) covers the cost of medically required services provided by physicians and some health care practitioners. You and your eligible dependants must apply for medical coverage under the government plan in your province of residence. You are responsible for paying the monthly premiums for your Medical Services Plan of BC coverage when you are a retired plan member.

MSP charges monthly premiums. As a retired member, you are responsible for paying these premiums for you, your spouse and/or eligible dependants. BC’s Public Service Pension Plan does not administer your basic provincial health care or subsidize your monthly premiums.

The MSP premium assistance program offers reduced rates to BC residents with financial need. Contact MSP to see if you are eligible and learn how to apply.
