Room Rates + Other Charges

Residents must have medical insurance coverage while they live here.

Residents must have medical insurance coverage while they live here. Extended care residents pay a monthly rent rate set by the BC Ministry of Health. This covers room and board only and is payable at the beginning of each month. Statements are prepared at the end of each month. Interest is charged on overdue accounts. Payment can be made by pre-approved automatic withdrawal from the bank, mail or cheque dropped off at our site. A summary of the rent payments can be issued upon request by contacting Providence’s Finance Department (604-875-5045 ext. 20128) and mailed out to the family.

Medical Services Plan (MSP) hospital insurance covers the costs of daily care provided by the care team. It does not pay for extras like cable television or bus transportation. Extra charges are added to the resident’s monthly comfort fund statement. Telephone, cable and internet services are arranged by residents/families and billed directly to them by TELUS or other service providers.
