The Saskatchewan health care system is made up of many provincial, regional and local organizations working together. The Province of Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Health oversees the direction of the health care system. Most health services in Regina are provided through the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region.

To access health care and doctors, you need a Saskatchewan Health Card for each individual in your family.
Once you move to Regina to live you should submit an application for a Saskatchewan Health Card for yourself and each member of your family that moved with you to determine if you are eligible for a health card. The Saskatchewan Health Card covers the costs of most physician and hospital services received in Canada. You may be required to pay for health care services if you do not have a health card.
