Health and Community Services


To apply for coverage, complete an Application Form and mail, fax, or bring it to one of the Medical Care Plan (MCP) offices, along with the appropriate identification and citizenship/immigration documents (photocopies are acceptable). Application forms are available at hospitals and doctors' offices throughout the province, and of course, from Medical Care Plan (MCP).

Properly completed applications, with all necessary supporting documents, are normally evaluated within two weeks. There are no direct premiums or charges for registration. If accepted for coverage, each person will receive a plastic Medical Care Plan (MCP) Card with a personal health identity number. This card should be presented whenever insured services are received.
