Thank you for sharing your ideas on replacing Medical Services Plan (MSP) premium revenue. The deadline for submissions is now closed.
As of January 31, 2018, the B.C. government cut MSP premiums by 50%, saving families up to $900 per year on their MSP premiums. The B.C. government also committed in Budget 2017 Update to eliminate MSP premiums within four years.
The Province established a task force of experts to provide advice on the best path to eliminate MSP premiums within the government’s current mandate. The MSP Task Force will examine the best approach to replacing the foregone revenue from the elimination of regressive MSP premiums.
The MSP Task Force will consider the written submissions provided by British Columbians as part of its review. The Task Force’s final report is due to government by March 31, 2018.
