Saskatchewan health card renewal stickers being sent out to 616,000 homes

SASKATOON - The majority of Saskatchewan health cards expire at the end of this year, so renewal stickers are being sent out that will validate the cards until Dec. 31, 2014.

The health card renewal packages are being mailed between Sept. 15 and Sept. 30.

More than 616,000 households will be receiving the renewal packages.

Residents are asked to check the accuracy of the information on the form at the bottom of the renewal letter.

Contact Saskatchewan's Health Registration Branch if the information needs to be changed.

Residents 18 years or older who choose to become an organ donor need to attach the organ donor sticker to their health card, sign the organ donor consent card and keep both in their wallet.
