AF: This patient does not have coverage for the DOS.
This is also common for patients that have moved out of province and are not yet covered by MSP. If they are new or returning residents of BC, they have a waiting period of 90 days before benefits can begin. The patient will need to provide you with their out-of-province health number (if applicable, excluding Quebec residents) or they will need to contact MSP to backdate their coverage date to prior to the Date Of Service (DOS) the practitioner provided the patient service.
Please Note: If your patient is a Refuge, Canadian Armed Forces, or RCMP you can submit claims directly for payment to Medavie Blue Cross: https://www.medaviebc.ca/en/health-professionals
