ENSURE YOUR SASKATCHEWAN HEALTH CARD IS RENEWED

All eligible Saskatchewan residents should have now received a package in

the mail containing renewal stickers for their Saskatchewan Health Services

card. The sticker is for cards that expire on December 31st, 2002.



The new sticker validates the Saskatchewan Health Services card ensuring

that residents continue to have access to valuable health benefits. The

green renewal sticker must be placed on the upper right hand corner of

individual Saskatchewan Health cards.



It is also very important that residents review the personal information

provided with the stickers returning any corrections on the enclosed form.



"If a person needs a new card, we certainly will replace it," Assistant

Deputy Health Minister Lawrence Krahn said. "But, renewal stickers are a

much less costly way of renewing health cards."



This year's renewal package also includes: an organ and tissue donor

consent card and a red donor sticker to encourage residents to consider

this valuable gift (the organ donor consent should be signed and kept

together with the Health Services card); poison centre phone line stickers

that can be placed on the telephone for quick reference in case of an

emergency poisoning; and a pamphlet entitled "News You Can Use About Health

Services" which contains important information and contact numbers about

health services in the province.



If residents have not received their renewal package, they should contact

Saskatchewan Health, Vital Statistics and Registration branch, toll free at

1-800-667-7551 or, in Regina, at 787-3251.
