The Health Benefits’
Transitional Coverage Request Form permits a one-time fill per drug per patient, if appropriate. Pharmacists will be reimbursed $10 in addition to the usual drug cost plus dispensing.
To enroll Health Benefits clients with Plan W, or to update client information, use the
MSP Registration Form and the
MSP Change Request Form. FNHA encourages pharmacy providers to help enroll Health Benefits clients into Plan W, which will ensure that clients have the most comprehensive benefit coverage available. Pharmacy providers who submit an MSP Registration Form for an eligible Health Benefits client who is not yet enrolled in Plan W will be paid a $10 MSP Enrolment Service Fee.
If you are assisting a Health Benefits client who is temporarily outside of BC, please see the fact sheet
