MSP COVERAGE FOR BC RESIDENTS:
Routine eye examinations are not a MSP benefit for individuals aged 19 to 64 years. Refractive change (needing glasses or contact lenses) does not meet the MSP medically required criteria. BC seniors who are 65 or older and BC children under the age of 19 have annual benefits towards the eye examination cost through MSP. Eye emergencies are also partially covered for all BC residents of any age. Please call the office for further details regarding the co-pay fees.
We also assist in obtaining approval with BC Social Services (Ministry of Human Resources) and First Nations Health Authority for coverage of your eye examination and/or eyewear.
HEALTHY KIDS PROGRAM:
Eligible clients include dependent children under the age of 19 who receive MSP assistance through through the Ministry of Health Services. Coverage includes an eye examination and prescription eyewear (basic frame and lenses).
