The Alberta Health Card


To become a patient or be seen as a walk in, you must provide the front desk with your Alberta Health Card, or other valid provincial health care card (excluding Quebec).  It is your responsibility to have valid health coverage and to carry proof of this coverage with you; or you will be charged the corresponding Alberta Health Services fee for your visit (generally between $37 and $60 for a basic visit).  As some health facilities cannot provide services without physically seeing your valid provincial health care card, we recommend keeping the card in your wallet at all times.

As there is no reciprocal health care arrangement with Quebec, Quebec health care card holders will be charged the scheduled fee and will be issued a receipt.

Out of country patients can be seen on a walk in basis at a fee of $125/visit (additional fees may be charged for complex issues or procedures). A receipt will be provided.
