Since April 1, 2020 eligible doctors have been able to receive a percentage premium on MSP fees for Consultation, Visit, Counselling, and Complete Examination services to help cover the rising rent, lease, or ownership costs of a community-based office.
Health Insurance BC (HIBC) manages the registration process and administers the BCP on behalf of the Medical Services Plan (MSP). If you haven’t registered for the BCP with HIBC, please note the following important registration dates:
- Doctors who register by July 31, 2021 are eligible to resubmit billing claims to receive retroactive BCP payment back to April 1, 2020.
- Doctors who register on August 1, 2021 or after are eligible to resubmit billing claims to receive retroactive BCP payment back to April 1, 2021.
Check out the BCP website for information including eligibility criteria, registration, and application forms.
How to resubmit to claim retroactive BCP payment:
Billing claims should be resubmitted with the exact same details, but this time add the BCP Facility Number that was assigned to your office. The claims system will automatically debit off the original claim and process your resubmitted claim, applying the BCP to applicable fees.
