The National Health Insurance system aims to provide medical coverage available to everyone. The contribution is based on individual’s salary and is automatically deducted from the payroll of all BVI employees. 7.5% is split between the employee and employer (3.75% each). Unemployed spouses must contribute 7.5% of their partner’s earnings. Children under 18 are exempt to the levy. The ceiling for the deductions is $77,220, earnings above this level would not be subject to payments.
Most treatments insured under the NHI are subject to copayments.
