Posted March 1, 2023 12:12 pm.
Newly issued Manitoba health cards will look a little different.
The six-digit family registration number used on health cards will be changing to include one letter and five numbers going forward.
The province says using a mix of numbers and letters for new family registration numbers will ensure options are available for Manitoba’s growing population.
The cards entitle people to health benefits and services within the province.
