MSP Premiums now cut in half, provide input on elimination.

Posted in:

As of January 1, 2018 the government has reduced MSP premiums by 50%, reversing the many increases of the past decades. The thresholds for premium assistance have also been adjusted so more British Columbians won’t have to pay at all. The new rates for MSP are:

Adjusted Net Income One Adult Two Adults in Family
$0-$26,000 $0.00 $0.00
$26,001-$28,000 $11.50 $23.00
$28,001-$30,000 $17.50 $35.00
$30,001-$34,000 $23.00 $46.00
$34,001-$38,000 $28.00 $56.00
$38,001-$42,000 $32.50 $65.00
Over $42,000 $37.50 $75.00
