Open to Provincial Region
All physicians and surgeons who practise medicine in the province must be registrants of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (“the College”). The College’s main responsibility is to protect the safety of patients by ensuring registrants practise medicine to the highest standards.
At times, physicians or surgeons may offer patients the option to pay a “block fee,” which is a fee that covers multiple uninsured services over a period of time. The College is interested in hearing from BC patients about their experience with paying block fees for services that are not covered by the province’s Medical Services Plan (MSP), also known as uninsured services.
