Help Sheet Updates and Cuts to Medical Coverage
Dear Community Partner,
We have completed the annual update of our Help Sheet publications. These free self-help guides are designed for people with disabilities who need to access provincial disability benefits and the medical services, equipment and supplies provided by the Ministry of Housing and Social Development (MHSD).
We hope these publications will help you to understand general program policies, regulations and requirements, and assist you to obtain disability benefits.
There are important changes which we have incorporated into the Help Sheets. Following the March 2nd budget, the Ministry of Housing and Social Development announced a number of cuts to the health and medical services available to people receiving provincial disability benefits and income assistance. The BCCPD is very concerned about the impact that these changes will have on our community. If you share our concerns, we invite you to write to Minister Coleman and your MLA.
