No fee.
Just bring 3 pieces of ID (licence, birthcertificate, mail with current address) to your local Ministry oif health office (listed in the blue pages of your local phone book)

they will reassign you a card version code right away (slip of paper you carry around with you)

When I lost my wallet all I had to do was call the MOH and they sent a new card in the mail for free. This was over 2 years ago though, things might have changed now.

You can call in to MOH if you already have the Green photo ID card. If it is a lost red&white card, you need to go into the office.

Did you know that even if someone steals your health card # and info they will only issue the same card and not a new #?

happened to me.

Also, they will not redo your pic, no matter if it even no longer looks like you.

My pic looks nothing like me at all, and some places would not take my card.

then my info was stolen from the hospital- so someone could be using that, yet i can't get a new pic or new # for another 3 years or so.

I have a stupid slip of paper now :mad:

Would it be possible to replace a health card if not lost? I have an old red/white one and I'd like to get the newer green photo id cards to match my driver's license. :)

Yes, just go down to any ministry of health office and apply for one. Could be a few hours wait depending how busy it is but you will receive it in the mail shortly after.
