Have you renewed your health card?

Saskatchewan health cards expire at the end of the month. Have you renewed yours for 2018?

The Government of Saskatchewan mailed out sticker renewal packages this fall. These stickers ensure your provincial health coverage will continue once the card itself expires on Dec. 31, 2017. The stickers validate health cards for a three year period to Dec. 31, 2020.

“The Saskatchewan Health Card is one of the most valuable cards in your possession as it indicates that you are entitled to health coverage under the provincial health insurance plan,” said Susan Antosh, eHealth Saskatchewan CEO. “Your health card must be presented when you require medical services, so please ensure that you update your card with the renewal sticker as soon as you receive it.”

eHealth Saskatchewan mailed out the sticker packages to more than 673,000 households in September. If you have not yet received your package, contact eHealth Saskatchewan or visit www.ehealthsask.ca to update your personal information.

The most common reason for people to not receive their renewal stickers in the mail is because eHealth Saskatchewan has not received a change to the family’s address if they have moved.

In addition to the updated sticker(s), the health card renewal package also includes information about eHealth Saskatchewan, HealthLine stickers and organ donor stickers.

If organ donation is desired, individuals must attach the organ donor sticker to their health card, as well as sign the card indicating their intention to donate organs or tissues, which is also included in the package. For more information on health benefits, visit www.saskatchewan.ca.

You can also contact eHealth by phone at 1-800-667-7551 (available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.) or in person at 2130 11th Avenue in Regina (open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.)
