Registering a Child Born in Québec for the Public Health Insurance Plan


Children born in Québec.


For a child to be eligible for the public health insurance plan, the parent with whom he or she permanently lives must be recognized as a:

  • Peron who has settled in Québec
  • Person temporarily staying in Québec.

Parents who have completed the forms Declaration of Birth and Application for Simplified Access to Birth-related Government Programs and Services do not need to take any steps to obtain their child’s health insurance card.

After receiving the forms, the Directeur de l'état civil forwards birth-related information to the Régie de l'assurance maladie. If the child is eligible, the Régie registers the child for the health insurance plan and issues a health insurance card.
