MSP Premium Assistance Eligibility Calculator

Last Modified: 2017-02-21

MSP’s premium rate structure and assistance programs are designed to offer a basic monthly rate to the majority of British Columbians and premium subsidies to those in financial need. The Regular Premium Assistance Program assists B.C. residents with the cost of premiums based on their income as verified with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Subsidies are based on an individual's net income (or a couple's combined net income) for the preceding tax year, less deductions for age, family size, disability and any reported Universal Child Care Benefit and Registered Disability Savings Plan income.

Note that this calculator is intended as a guide to help British Columbians determine if they may qualify for premium assistance. For more information or to confirm eligibility, please contact Health Insurance BC.
