BC Medical Services Plan (MSP)
In order to claim health benefits under the AMS/GSS Health & Dental Plan, you must be covered by the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP), or have other equivalent basic coverage such as other provincial health care or private basic health insurance. MSP is public health insurance and anyone residing in B.C. for longer than six months is required by law to enrol in it.
→ Visit BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) for more information
Students can opt out or enroll their family during the following periods only:
- For current students and students starting in September: September 5-26, 2017
- For students starting in January: January 3-24, 2018 (New Winter Term 2 students only)
The processing of new Plan members’ claims is delayed for the first two months of each term while StudentCare, our extended health and dental plan provider waits for complete enrolment lists, after opt-outs and enrollments have been processed. Claims can be dropped off at the Health & Dental Plan Office, but they will not be processed until the Blackout Period ends. You may also hold your claims until this time.
Remember: claims are your responsibility until received by the insurance company. Practitioners and pharmacists can’t accept Pay Direct, or assignment of benefits during the Blackout Period.
