Medical Services Plan
The provincial government offers partial coverage for a range of services to qualified individuals. For qualuified MSP beneficiaries, MSP contributes $23 per visit for a combined annual limit of 10 visits each calendar year for the following services: chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, naturopathy, physical therapy and non-surgical podiatry.
