COVID-19: Answers to your questions

Certain services are available by appointment only at our Montréal and Québec reception desks. No one without an appointment will be seen. For a list of the services offered by appointment, or if you have any questions, refer to the webpage Questions and answers about our services during the pandemic.

Renew a Health Insurance Card

COVID-19: Please do not go to a SAAQ office or a CLSC for a Health Insurance Card

Special measures are in effect for the renewal or replacement of Health Insurance Cards. Thank you for not going to the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) or a CLSC for card-related services. To find out what you need to do, read the webpage Questions and answers about our services during the pandemic.

You must renew your Health Insurance Card before it expires. Otherwise, you will have to pay for any services covered under the Québec Health Insurance Plan that you receive and then apply for a reimbursement once your card has been renewed.

You should receive the form entitled Renewal Notice 3 months before your card expires. If you are newly registered with the Health Insurance Plan and age 18 or over, you will receive the form 45 days before your card expires.

To renew a card that has been expired for more than 6 months, you will have to pay a fee of $25, in addition to the cost for having your photo taken.

Unless otherwise indicated, you must answer all questions.
What is your situation?
