On April 4, 2018 the BC Government announced that they were bringing into force the outstanding sections of the Medicare Protection Amendment Act (2003). As this legislation updated Sections 17 and 18 of the Medicare Protection Act, the Plaintiffs will have to update their Statement of Claim. This application will take place the week of May 28.
Also, because this legislation is strengthening the enforcement of doctors and clinics who are extra-billing unlawfully, the Plaintiffs have also indicated that they will be bringing forward an application to have the start date of the enforcement legislation be moved from its current start date on October 1, 2018 to sometime after this case has been finished.
