23.1. Health insurance cards issued to insured persons referred to in subparagraph 6 of the first paragraph of section 23 shall be valid for not less than 27 months and not more than 99 months. This period of validity shall be computed, as the case may be, from the expiry month and year indicated on the insured person’s current health insurance card or from the date of registration of a new-born child, of a child placed for adoption or of an adopted child who has the status of resident of Québec to the month and year in which the insured person’s age becomes a multiple of 8.
However, when the age of an insured person may not become a multiple of 8 within the period of validity of a card referred to in the first paragraph, this period of validity shall be computed to the month and year in which the insured person’s age becomes a multiple of 4.
