You should read this notice if you were a practising fee-for-service medical practitioner who was enrolled with BC MSP from July 23, 1992 to April 30, 1996, or any portion of that time period. You may be a class member and eligible for participation in the previously approved Settlement Agreement.
Previous notices advising of the approval of the Settlement Agreement can be found at www.BCDoctorsSettlement.ca. On July 11, 2016, the British Columbia Supreme Court set Friday, January 13, 2017 at 5:00 PM Eastern as the date and time for delivery of claims forms by class members to the Claims Administrator. In order to participate in the settlement, class members are required to submit a claims form.
Due to a number of claims forms being received late, the Court has extended the deadline for the delivery of claims forms to the Claims Administrator to Friday, April 7, 2017 (2:00 PM Pacific/5:00 PM Eastern).
Class members who have already submitted claims forms to the Claims Administrator, but who missed the January 13, 2017 deadline, do not need to resubmit their claims forms. Claims forms for all other eligible class members can be obtained at www.BCDoctorsSettlement.ca or by contacting the Claims Administrator.
