Becoming eligible for MSP [insurance in BC] when landing end of July

  1. Hi There,

    My self and wife have got the PR and are planning to land in vancouver end of July 2018. Now when will we be eligible for the BC insurance [MSP]? In case the insurance does not kick in immediately what are our options?

    Thank you,
  2. Sounds like you will qualify for MSP on Oct 1st if you arrive in July.

  3. Thank you Canuck78, any suggestions on what optional insurance I can avail until I become eligible for MSP? My wife would be 4 months pregnant by then [july 2018] so want to purchase an insurance for those 3 months when the MSP has not kicked in.
  4. Most don't cover pregnancy if you are already pregnant. Actually most don't cover any routine care just emergencies. You could look to see if you can find insurance that may cover 2nd trimester emergencies. Not sure if it exists. You'll have to plan to pay for all medical care and hope you don't need to go to the hospital where the costs really add up quickly.
