The Health Benefits Program covers six benefit areas:

The program also manages the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) and pays for ambulance bills for eligible First Nations in BC.


Health Benefits provides benefit coverage through partnerships with Pacific Blue Cross (PBC), BC PharmaCare, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and First Nations ​and organizations. These partnerships help us offer you a convenient way to access your benefits.

Program Goals

The goal of the Health Benefits Program is to cover medically necessary items, services, and travel that:

  • address First Nations peoples’ unique health needs
  • respect First Nations’ cultures and values
  • ensure the program is available for future generations
  • close the health gap between First Nations and non-First Nations in BC
  • focus on wellness and prevention instead of only treating sickness
  • are based on professional judgement, best practices, and evidence-based care​
