Effective January 1, 2017, the British Columbia Medical Services Plan premiums (MSP) will have a new rate structure to reflect premium charges for adults only. Children under 19 years of age will be exempt from premiums.

On September 15, 2016 the Government of BC also announced that a planned 4% increase to the monthly premiums was cancelled. The adult premium will remain at the 2016 rate of $75 per month.

For example, a household with one parent and two children will be charged a single adult rate, rather than the previous family of three or more rate.
