Hospital Consultation and Inspection Division files

  • GR-0380
  • Series
  • 1948-1970

This series consists of files of the Hospital Consultation and Inspection Division of the BC Hospital Insurance Service. Records have been divided into a subseries relating to individual public and private hospitals, and a subseries of various subject files.

In 1948 an "Act to provide for the Establishment of Hospital Insurance and Financial Aid to Hospitals" was passed. Accordingly, the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service was established as a third branch of the Department of Health and Welfare to administer the premium payment plan. The plan provided hospital care benefits for acute illness at the standard ward level to residents of the province. At that time the Inspector of Hospitals was transferred from the Department of the Provincial Secretary to the Hospital Services Division of the new BCHIS. The name of the Division was changed in 1951 to the Hospital Consultation and Inspection Division. The division had both a Vancouver and a Victoria office. These appear to be records of the Victoria office.

The files relating to individual hospitals contain inspection reports, notes regarding communications with hospital personnel, correspondence with hospital managers or representatives, and internal memoranda regarding the hospital. They sometimes also include floor plans of the facilities and other types of reports. The subject files include a wide variety of materials, including correspondence.

British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service records

  • GR-2657
  • Series
  • 1950-1957

In 1948 the "Act to provide for the establishment of Hospital Insurance and Financial Aid to Hospitals" was passed. The British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service (BCHIS) was set up as the third branch of the Department of Health and Welfare. During its early years the BCHIS experienced many difficulties, particularly in collecting premiums. This difficulty was solved in 1954 when the government amended the Hospital Insurance Act abolishing premiums and providing that the Service be financed from consolidated revenue. An additional 2% was added to the sales tax effective April 1, 1954. These records illustrate the difficulties of collecting premiums, and other aspects of the work of the fledging BCHIS.

This accession is a small part, A - I, in an alphabetical series, of the Hospital Insurance Services' general office files. It includes material relating to the Liability and Adjustment division, the Inspector of Hospitals, the Hospital Advisory Council, as well as the executives, L.F. Detwiller (Commissioner) and D.M. Cox (Assistant Commissioner). The bulk of the files relate to the premium collections work, including correspondence with delinquent rate payers. The last part of this series, J-Z, did not arrive with this accession; its whereabouts, and whether it still exists, are unknown.
