The BC government plans to introduce retroactive legislation to provide statutory authority for the reimbursement that is the subject of a proposed class action lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that successive provincial governments since 1973 have been using ICBC monies (between $16 million and $60 million annually) to reimburse BC’s Medical Services Plan for doctor’s visits by car accident victims.

Scott Stanley, part of the team representing class members in the proposed class action, explained that the secret and illegal reimbursement practice meant that crash victims did not receive the full benefits to which they were entitled (because their ICBC benefits were used to reimburse doctor visits) and BC drivers paid crash victims doctor costs twice: once through tax contributions to MSP (which until recently were mandatory) and again through higher ICBC premiums.
