Health Card Renewal Stickers Required by December 31
Released on December 12, 2014
Residents with provincial health coverage who have not received their health card renewal stickers in the mail are encouraged to contact eHealth Saskatchewan before December 31, 2014. The stickers validate health cards for a three year period from January 1, 2015, to December 31, 2017.
“Saskatchewan health cards ensure people are covered for a variety of medical services,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said. “We want to make sure all residents have an up-to-date sticker on their health cards so their health coverage is not interrupted.”
Residents who have not received their renewal packages in the mail should update their personal information at www.ehealthsask.ca. Residents can also come to eHealth Saskatchewan at 2130-11th Avenue, Regina, to receive their renewal sticker or call 1-800-667-7551. eHealth’s hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. December 24 and 31.
The most common reason for people not to receive their renewal stickers is because they have moved and not updated their address with eHealth. This year, eHealth Saskatchewan mailed health card renewal stickers to more than 689,000 households in the province from September 15 to 30.

Health Registries and Vital Statistics in New Location
Released on January 30, 2014
Counter service for both Vital Statistics and the province’s health services card is available February 3 at their new permanent location in downtown Regina.
The issue and renewal of provincial health cards joins Vital Statistics as a public service for residents of Saskatchewan following the transfer from the Ministry of Health to eHealth Saskatchewan.
“eHealth is pleased to offer counter service for residents of Saskatchewan looking to renew, replace or apply for their health services card,” eHealth Saskatchewan CEO Susan Antosh said. “Offering the provincial health card is a great fit with eHealth because we have already been providing counter service and management of Vital Statistics. Residents can now visit the same location for all of these services.”
All services are available online, by phone, and now, in person at one central location. For added convenience, customers are reminded that they can go online anytime to renew, replace, request or change their health services card information.
This move is a natural progression of housing similar services. Vital Statistics transferred to eHealth in mid-2013, moving from its former Park Street location to physically join eHealth and health card services on February 3. The transfer of the health services card to eHealth occurred in early January of this year.
Visit www.ehealthsask.ca to order birth, death or marriage certificates, or to apply for and replace a health services card, and to report any changes to the family status or address associated with a health card.
Counter service is available at 2130 11th Avenue, Regina, between the Bay and the Regina Transit office.
eHealth Saskatchewan is a Treasury Board Crown Corporation responsible for the implementation of the provincial electronic health record. eHealth co-ordinates, implements and maintains key electronic health information systems in many public health care organizations.
