Saskatchewan Health Cards
All Saskatchewan residents must register themselves and their dependents for a Saskatchewan Health Card in order to receive health benefits.
The Saskatchewan Health Card is a valuable personal identification card that you should be prepared to present whenever you need health services.
Health Card applications are usually processed within six to eight weeks after we receive your application—not including mailing time. Due to high demand, we are currently behind in processing times. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Applications are always processed in the order they are received.
If you submit your request online, you can log into your online account to check the status of your request. When you online application is processed, we will send you an email advising you of when you can expect to receive your Health Card. We will also send you an email if you are missing any required information on your application.
We appreciate your patience as we work towards processing all requests.
If you would like to be an organ and tissue donor, you can get an "organ and tissue donor" sticker on your Health Card. The stickers are included in each Health Card package, along with a small form that requires both you and a family member to sign your acknowledgement of the intent to donate.
Speak to your family about your wishes to be a donor. In Saskatchewan, organs and tissues will not be donated without your family or next-of-kin's consent, even if you have sticker on your Health Card.
To request an "organ and tissue donor" sticker, contact us.
