Medical Services Plan

Public Health Insurance is called the Medical Services Plan (MSP) in British Columbia. It is available to B.C. residents and it covers the cost of medically necessary services. This includes virtual care and telehealth based consultations with medical doctors.

When you are registered with MSP, you will be given a unique 10-digit Personal Health Number. You can use this number to register for services such as virtual care on Walk In. We make it easy for you to get the care you need.
