BC Medical Services Plan

Medical Services Plan of BC (MSP) coverage for acupuncture treatment is available for people receiving premium assistance. Not sure if you are covered? All we need is your Personal Health Number (PHN), found on your BC Service Card, and we can let you know how many treatments you have remaining for the year. A doctor’s referral is not required for this coverage.

MSP pays for a combined annual limit of 10 visits for acupuncture, massage, physiotherapy, chiropractic, naturopathy, and non-surgical podiatry. MSP covers $23 per visit and we will bill them directly.
