BC Medical Services Plan

What does it cost the government of BC to operate MSP? Why do we bother having it?

I suggest that the provincial government would save money by getting rid of the MSP system and simply covering all the provincial healthcare costs through general revenues. It costs money to send out bills and collect the money for the public. I fail to see how it would not be more cost effective to not have it all.

There will still be a need for CareCards, as it has to be clear who gets covered in BC by the provicial government. Not everyone in BC using healthcare has their costs paid for by the provincial government.
