Renew a Health Insurance Card

You should receive a renewal notice 3 months before your card expires. If your card expires, you will have to pay for health services covered by the health insurance and apply for reimbursement once your card has been renewed. To renew a card that has been expired for more than 6 months, a $25 fee applies, in addition to the cost of having the photo taken.

Have you registered for health insurance with a study permit, a temporary work permit or under temporary immigration documents?

You will not receive a renewal notice for your Health Insurance Card. Even if your main residence is in Québec, you are a temporary resident until you obtain permanent residence from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. If your card is about to expire or if your immigration status has changed, you must re-register for health insurance to inform us and obtain a new card. To find out more, refer to the webpage Obtain a new Health Insurance Card.

Unless otherwise indicated, you must answer all questions.
