Re: No Photo ID? No Health Card For You!
said by DKS:birth cert you say ?
Looks like OHIP has egg in their face. A 96 year old woman with no photo ID. No photo ID? No health card!
A 96-year-old Ottawa woman who lost her Ontario health card says she's in a "jam" and caught up in red tape trying to get a replacement because she doesn't have proper photo identification.
Two weeks ago, Elizabeth Stead went for tests at a local clinic and discovered her health card was missing.
She was issued a 90-day temporary card, but replacing her original is proving next to impossible because she doesn't have a driver's licence or other required photo ID, according to her son, Richard Stead.
"No one ever thought through the implications when they were creating it: What to do in a case like my mothers?" Richard Stead told CBC News.
"She has lots of documents. She has her birth certificate, her marriage certificate, proof that she came to Canada. But none of its good enough now unless you have a photo ID.
"And to get a photo ID, you have to have a photo ID. Thats the paradox," he added.
and did she have proof of address and something older with a sin number on it?
that without the birth cert i got my health card....so someone is boning around or since two years they changed the rules
