IHA Fees To Non-Residents
BC"S Medical Services Plan (MSP) and the Interior Health Authority (IHA) have raised the Basic Emergency Department Visit fee from $400 to $500 effective Dec. 1, 2007. This does not include Ambulance Fees (now $640 from Big White to Kelowna General Hospital), physician fees (now $300-$500 each), basic lab fees (minimum $196), or medications/braces. Now, an uncomplicated injury (i.e. ankle sprain with normal X-rays) will cost over $1500 by ambulance; over $1000 by private vehicle.
