My driver's license expire on 2024, but my OHIP card expired on March 2021.
If I apply for renewing OHIP card. It will also force me to renew my Driver's license.

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, you may not need to renew your health card. Expired health cards will be accepted by Ontario health care providers.

According to Service Ontario’s COVID-19 notice:
Please note: we have extended validation to expired and expiring health cards. You do not need to renew at this time.


A drivers licence is necessary to renew your health card online. But, if you cannot renew online, Service Ontario recommends that you continue using an expired card to access health services. Feel free to also contact Service Ontario’s INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 for more information.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to also post them here.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
