The Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP) provides eligible Alberta residents with full coverage for medically necessary physician services, and some dental and oral surgical health services.

Your AHCIP coverage can be used across Canada, but there are limits. Not all services available to you in Alberta are covered outside the province.

Always carry your health care card and have additional travel or medical insurance when you leave Alberta. You may laminate your card to protect it.
