Health Care Card

Change of circumstances

You need to tell us and report any changes to your circumstances when you hold a Health Care Card.

For instance:

  • if your income goes up
  • you start or return to work, or
  • you change your address

If you stop getting your payment, we will automatically cancel your Health Care Card.

If you return to work, you can keep your card for up to 6 months as long as you got a payment for 1 year or more. Read more information about returning to work.
