Uninsured Services

Medical Services Plan (MSP), your public health insurance policy through your CareCard, does not cover all services provided by your family doctor. ¬†Services not covered by MSP are referred to as “uninsured services”. ¬†Listed below are examples of uninsured services commonly requested.

The fee for an uninsured service is determined by your doctor.  For uninsured services, most doctors use rates set by Doctors of BC (formerly BC Medical Association) and The Society of General Practitioners of British Columbia as a guideline.

For further information on charges related to uninsured services, please ask our office staff.
