In accordance with the Canada Health Act, Alberta has a publicly administered and funded health care system that guarantees Albertans receive universal access to medically necessary hospital and health care services. All new and returning Alberta residents must register for Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP) coverage to receive insured hospital and physician services.
Alberta Health Care insurance requires that you show you personal health card along with photo identification when you visit a doctor's office or hospital within Alberta. If you do not show your card or are not eligible, you may be asked to pay for health services before receiving them.
Other provincial or private health insurance cards may also be accepted.
