Québec Health Record: Refusing to Participate or Modifying or Withdrawing a Refusal | Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux

Refusing to Participate in the Québec Health Record or Modifying a Refusal

To refuse to participate in the Québec Health Record (QHR) or to modify your refusal, use one of the following procedures:

  • Use the online service Québec Health Record – Registration Form, and check I refuse or I modify my refusal to participate in the Québec Health Record in the Subject section.
  • Fill out the Refusal or Modification of Refusal Form and mail to the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.

You must provide the information on your health insurance card.

If you indicate your refusal through the online service, you will be given a confirmation number.

If you indicate your refusal by mail, you will be sent a written confirmation after your request is processed, to the address linked to your health insurance number at the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec. You will not be sent a written confirmation if you mail a refusal after one has already been received from you.

You will not receive a written confirmation if you add an end date to your refusal or modify the end date.

Requesting a Written Confirmation of Your Refusal
If you do not have a written confirmation of your refusal and wish to obtain one, fill out the form Access to Information Request – Québec Electronic Health Record, specifying that all you want is a confirmation of your refusal. Mail the form to the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.

Note
For an incapacitated person, this procedure must be done by his or her legal representative.
