Subject:               British Columbia Medical Services Plan deductions December 2017 for employees in British Columbia


British Columbia Medical Services Plan premium rates (effective January 1, 2017) were changed on the December 13, 2017 pay for employees who reside in the province of British Columbia. Any retroactive refund or deficiencies of contributions since January 1, 2017 were processed on the December 27, 2017 pay of impacted employees.


It has come to our attention that deductions or refunds may have been processed incorrectly for some employees. Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is working on identifying these employees and will make the necessary adjustments as soon as possible.


If you have questions regarding the Medical Services Plan of BC, please access the website Health Insurance BC. For any pay-related questions, please contact your departmental compensation unit.


Thank you for your continued support.
