BC NDP

Getting rid of MSP fees

John Horgan's BC NDP will eliminate MSP fees and make sure low and middle income families come out ahead. We'll go ahead with the 2017 budget's 50 per cent reduction and completely eliminate MSP fees within four years, saving families as much as $1,800 a year.

A non-partisan MSP Elimination Panel will advise on how to protect healthcare funding while phasing out this unfair flat tax.

BC Green

Abolish MSP premiums

A BC Green government would eliminate the severe MSP premiums system and shift the cost of our healthcare system into a fair and equitable tiered income tax system where everyone contributes based on their ability to pay.

CHP BC

Eliminate MSP premiums

We can and should eliminate the remaining fees. A small user fee should be in place to reduce unnecessary access to services and to slightly offset costs.

BC Citizens First

100% ABOLITION OF MSP HEALTH PAYMENTS FOR PRIVATE PAYING BC CITIZENS FROM 31ST DECEMBER 2017

We propose to completely eliminate MSP monthly premiums for all private BC citizens who currently pay their own MSP premiums. Our modifying legislation will require third party contributors to continue paying premiums for all people covered as at the date of the BC Budget 2017 whilst they continue to remain in their employment, membership or under contractual arrangements current at the date of the BC Budget 2017. Current premiums will remain in the short-term for all people currently covered by their employers or unions etc, although we do anticipate complete abolition of these premiums for all such BC citizens as soon as financially viable.
