It is important to keep your Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP) information up-to-date. Make sure to report a change of address, change in relationship status, new dependents, and if a member of your family dies outside Alberta.

Students, including those leaving Alberta to study or coming into Alberta to study, need to know what health coverage they have or need while away from home.

If you move out of Alberta, let us know so we can update or cancel AHCIP coverage.

If you are 65 years or older, you receive additional coverage for prescriptions and other health-related services not covered by AHCIP. Learn more about seniors health benefits.
