Health care in the region is planned, coordinated, and governed by the Interior Health Authority and the Northern Health Authority. The Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) cost shares with the Ministry of Health for acute care and extended care capital purchases. Typically, the Health Authorities fund 60% while the CCRHD funds 40%.
All Cariboo Chilcotin residents pay for the costs of building local hospitals and purchasing capital equipment through an annual Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District tax requisition. The Board of Directors has committed to evaluate the tax rate each year. Currently the tax rate for the CCRHD is $70 per $100,000 of residential assessment.
In 1996, the Ministry of Health changed the boundaries of the Regional Hospital District and created the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District. The previous Cariboo Regional Hospital District dissolved in 2015 upon the retirement of all its associated debt.
