Dear Paov,

In an election year, there's a lot at stake for public health care.

The BC Health Coalition brings together community members, seniors, students, health care workers, researchers and community service providers to be the voice of public health care in BC.

With a provincial election coming this fall, it is more important than ever to come together and fight for evidence based public solutions that British Columbians need.

Repeal the MSP 3-Month Wait Period, says BC’s Period Poverty Task Force

In March 2024, BC’s Period Poverty Task Force submitted its final report to the Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. One notable short-term recommendation is to abolish the Medical Services Plan (MSP) 3-month wait period for all refugees, international students, newcomer immigrants, and seasonal migrant workers. This policy has a wide range of consequences for both those affected and the provincial health system overall. READ MORE

Hi Paov,

I recently heard from Dale who was charged $850.67 for a CT scan to diagnose a broken hand. He was told the scan was necessary, but not that he would be receiving a bill.

It’s illegal to bill patients for medically necessary services that are covered by MSP.

The BC Health Coalition wants to know how health care access in various communities impacts the likelihood of being illegally charged for health care services.

Please fill out this quick, 3 minute survey, and let us know where British Columbians are most impacted by extra-billing.

Take the survey

Illegal extra-billing is an ongoing problem in BC. A Health Canada report from March of this year showed that private providers charged BC residents at least $18.1 million in 2021-22. Most of that, $11.3 million, was charged for diagnostic services like MRIs and CT scans.

Even if you don’t think you’ve been extra-billed, your response is valuable in mapping out...

Important Pacific Blue Cross Update

NationBuilder r1

Paov,

Last week, we put out an urgent call to all Pacific Blue Cross (PBC) members to vote in the PBC Board of Directors elections. We wanted to make sure we could stop CEO Brian Day from becoming a director of the PBC Board with the objective of pushing privatization through BC’s largest not-for-profit extended benefits provider.

As of June 14th, PBC Members were informed that the Pacific Blue Cross Board Elections were postponed. You can read Pacific Blue Cross’ statement here.

The good news is we have more time to mobilize voters who want to see a PBC Board that prioritizes people over profits. The bad news is, that PBC members who have already voted will need to recast their ballot when the election is rescheduled. So, remember to check your inbox for updates from Pacific Blue Cross and talk to your friends, family and co-workers who are PBC members about the importance of keeping pro-privatization candidates off of the PBC Board.

Hi Paov,

I recently experienced firsthand the anxiety of waiting for a surgery date and CT scan appointment for a family member. Likewise, all over the province, patients are waiting months or even years for medically necessary surgeries.

The BC health Coalition wants to know how these wait times affect you and your community in Victoria.

Please fill out this quick, 2 minute survey and let us know where our members are most affected by this troubling issue.

Pacific Blue Cross Members - Vote today, don't vote for Day

NationBuilder r1

Paov,

If you or someone you know is a member of Pacific Blue Cross, we urgently need your support this week.

Right now, Pacific Blue Cross (PBC) plan members can vote to elect new directors to the PBC Board. As plan members, the health and well-being of you and your family are directly impacted by the decisions made by the PBC Board of Directors.

There is a lot at stake in this election. This year, Dr. Brian Day is running to be a director of the PBC Board. That's right. That's the same Dr. Profit who spent more than a decade attempting to break Canada's public health care system in court.

We stopped him in the courts, but now he wants to be on the PBC Board so he can promote his own privatization agenda, not because he has the best interests of PBC members at heart.

Pacific Blue Cross Members - Stop CEO Brian Day from ushering in Privatization through your benefits

NationBuilder r1

Paov --

Dun-e Dun-e... Duun-e Duun-e... Whenever private surgical clinic CEO Dr. Brian Day’s name comes up, the theme song from “Jaws” plays in my head. That's because the BC Health Coalition spent more than a decade fighting Day’s legal attempt to break Canada’s public health care system.

Now, Doctor Day is running to be a director of the Pacific Blue Cross Board with the objective of ushering in privatization through BC’s largest not-for-profit extended benefits provider.

But we stopped him in the courts, and we will stop him now! There are only three board seats available, two of which are for doctors. If Pacific Blue Cross members vote for candidates who prioritize people over profit, we can keep Day away.

VOTE TODAY TO KEEP DAY AWAY

The following candidates want PBC to remain a strong, not-for-profit health insurance provider.
