Indigenous patients

Indigenous patients disproportionately struggle to afford their medication. Plan W is designed to meet the unique needs of B.C. First Nations.

  • Plan W covers 100 percent of:
  • Eligible prescription costs
  • Certain medical supplies​
  • Certain over-the-counter drugs
  • Some natural health products
  • Pharmacy services

Patients are eligible for coverage under the Plan W if they:

  • Have active Medical Services Plan (MSP) coverage. To enroll in MSP, contact the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA).
  • Are a registered Indian under the Indian Act, or are a child under 2 years who has at least one parent who is a registered Indian under the Indian Act
