One of the most valuable cards in your wallet is being renewed this fall.


All Saskatchewan residents with provincial health coverage will be receiving Health Card Renewal Packages in September.  eHealth Saskatchewan will be sending packages containing stickers that renew health cards for a three year period, to December 31, 2020.
To help ensure packages are received before health cards expire, any resident with a change of address or family composition (married, divorced, separated, deceased) within the last three years are asked to update that information with eHealth Saskatchewan.
“Our priority is to ensure that you and your family maintain health coverage, which is why we want to confirm ahead of time that your renewal package will be mailed to the correct address,” Health Minister Jim Reiter said.  “We encourage all citizens with provincial health coverage to contact eHealth Saskatchewan if you have moved or changed addresses in the past three years.”
Residents can update their personal information at www.ehealthsask.ca.  They can also come to eHealth Saskatchewan at 2130-11th Avenue, Regina or call 1-800-667-7551.  eHealth’s hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Your Saskatchewan Health Card indicates that you will receive health coverage under the provincial health insurance plan,” eHealth Saskatchewan CEO Susan Antosh said.  “As soon as you receive the new sticker in the mail, we encourage you to place it on your health card, so that you can continue being eligible for covered medical services.”

This year, packages will be sent to more than 670,000 households in the province.  All provincial health cards expire on December 31, 2017.
