Important changes coming to Medical Services Plan of BC (MSP) January 1, 2017!
1. There will be no premiums for children under 19 years of age or fulltime students under 25.
- 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.
- UVic is identifying all children or eligible student dependents and will update employee records automatically. No action is required from the employee.
2. Premium Assistance will be available to those whose adjusted net income is up to $42,000 (an increase from the current $30,000).
- Premium Assistance offers several levels of subsidies based on an individual's net income (or a couple's combined net income) for the preceding tax year.
- Please forward completed premium assistance applications to the UVic Benefits Office
