Updating health card
Forms are available by downloading (PDF) or calling the MSI office.
The MSI Health Card Renewal form that Nova Scotia residents receive in the mail every 4 years has been recently updated.
You can notify MSI of your change of address online, via the Government Online Services Website.
If you want to re-register and get the photo card, follow the instructions in the letter.
You will need to show valid identity documents as part of the re-registration process.
If you still have a red and white card, you will soon get a letter from the government asking you to re-register for health coverage and get the green photo Health Card.
This does not mean that your Health Card or health care coverage are expiring, however, you must follow this request.
After then your non-income tested Low Income Health Card will no longer be valid.
