Change your address: Health Card

You need to notify the Health Card Registry if your address changes.

Use the Change an Address service to update your address. You can also use this service to change your address with Registry of Motor Vehicles.

You need to provide your new address to the Health Card Registry when you move. If your Health Card has expired, the Health Card Registry processes your address change and sends you the Health Card Renewal Form.

Your address doesn’t display on your Health Card, so you don’t need to replace your existing Health Card when your address changes.

Registry of Motor Vehicles

When you update the address for your Health Card, you can also change your address with Registry of Motor Vehicles.
