With a new year only weeks away, the provincial government is reminding people to make sure their Saskatchewan health cards are up-to-date.
According to the province, most health cards are set to expire on Dec. 31.
Renewal stickers, which extend a card’s expiry date by three years to Dec. 31, 2020, were mailed out to more than 689,000 households this fall.
If the expiry date passes without renewal, people could be billed for medical services.
Anyone who has not received their renewal sticker is urged to contact eHealth Saskatchewan as soon as possible either by calling 1-800-667-7551, emailing change@eHealthSask.ca or in person at the eHealth Regina office at 2130-11th Avenue.
The office is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except on statutory holidays, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
The province said the most common reason people do not receive their renewal stickers is because they have moved, and not updated their address with eHealth Saskatchewan.
People can go online to update their address, as well as personal and family information.
