The start of 2017 will see some new changes to MSP premiums in BC. As of January 1st, per the Ministry of Health:

  • There will be no premiums for children under 19 years of age.
  • MSP premium rates will be determined by the number of adults on an MSP account (the MSP account holder and, if applicable, a spouse).
  • The MSP premium rate for two adults will be twice the amount of the single adult rate.
  • Full Regular Premium Assistance will be available to those whose adjusted net income is $24,000 or less (an increase from the current $22,000).
  • Premium Assistance will be available to those whose adjusted net income is up to $42,000 (an increase from the current $30,000).
