Something doesn't sound right about this story.
Whether applying for a new or replacement health card, you must bring three original documents to prove citizenship/immigration status, residency in Ontario and identity (refer to the Ontario Health Coverage Document List(form 9998E-82)).
You may be asked for additional documents. For example, if your name has changed you may need to provide a marriage certificate or a change of name certificate.
Children older than 15½ years of age must register in person and have their photo and signature captured. They will need their own original documents.
You do not need to go to a ServiceOntario centre if :
Your photo health card is lost, stolen or damaged (e.g., card is broken, magnetic stripe doesn't work)
Your child is under 15 ½ years of age and needs to renew his or her photo health card (refer to Renewing Your Photo Health Card)
You are 80 years of age or older and receive a notice allowing you to renew your photo health card by mail and you have no changes to name or address (refer to Renewing Your Photo Health Card)
If you need a replacement photo health card you can make your request by telephone or in writing as long as you have not changed any information as shown on the card itself, or the card has not expired.
You need 1 document from each list. There are types of non photo id in each list.--
