Your health care card should always be in the correct name and it is best to prioritize this document when changing names. Easy Name Change provides the ‘Notice of Change/Update’ form in your kit. We also provide the Alberta health forms to register your change of relationship status.
Spouses must be on the same card, so you also need to complete the ‘Notice of Change/Addition’ form. We provide this for you.
Divorced or separated?
You can apply to remove your spouse from your card by completing the ‘Notice of Change/Deletion’ form. We provide the form in our name change kits, which can be accessed via the link below. If you are divorced you and your ex must be on separate cards.
You may either submit the forms via an Alberta Registry Agent or directly to AHCIP. If you use a registry agent you can change your driver’s licence at the same time, saving yourself a trip. If you prefer, mail the forms to Alberta Health or AHCIP. Replacement health care cards are provided within 2 weeks via a registry agent or 4-6 weeks if lodged directly with Alberta Health.
Your name change in other places
It’s important to prioritize changing names on your Alberta driver’s licence. This can be done by an Alberta Registry Agent, so it’s recommended you change your licence and health care card at the same time.
