Default medical insurance

I am PR since 2002 and my ohip card expired 4 months ago .actually this year I was healthy and I was not in need to the card .Because of that I did not pay attention to the expiry date .
Renewal form was sent to my address but unfortunately I did not see it also.

In such a scenario what to do ?

Default Re: medical insurance

It is not about the validity of OHIP card - if you are not meeting residency obligations for OHIP then you don't have coverage even in card is still valid. Fact that you are a PR won't make you by itself eligible to keep OHIP coverage. You must reside in Ontario for at least 153 days in any 12 months period in order to keep your coverage. So, there are 2 scenarios (you didn't tell us where you are but if you are asking in this forum instead of simply calling OHIP you are probably outside Canada) -

1. If you are living in Ontario and have met residency requirements then what's the problem? Pick up the phone and call OHIP - you will be asked for proof of continuous residency with your renewal application plus you will have to visit OHIP office in person and coverage will continue. All details are here:

2. But if you are not in Ontario and/or haven't lived there for at least 153 days in past 12 months then you can't renew your coverage without new waiting period after you return to Ontario from where you are...
