If your Medicare card is lost, stolen or damaged, it can be replaced.
Any New Brunswick resident who has a valid Medicare card may have it replaced if it is lost, stolen or damaged for the minimal fee of $10.00.
If you report your card stolen, in order to protect your privacy, the stolen card will be terminated. A new Medicare number and card will be issued upon receipt of the $10.00 fee. It is your responsibility to notify your service providers of your new number.
To arrange for a replacement card(s), visit your local Service New Brunswick office or send a completed Medicare Change Request, Replacement and/or Renewal, signed and dated, to New Brunswick Medicare, along with a cheque or money order, made payable to the Minister of Finance, in the amount of $10.00 for each replacement card required (one card per person only).
Exempt from the $10.00 replacement card fee are:
- Seniors who receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement,
- Income assistance recipients, and
- Resident’s who’ve received a damaged or misprinted card.
