I think its a great idea. The reason why is you now have your photo ID on you to receive medial attention. There are a lot of people for out of country that take advantage of our medical system by using relatives and friends medical. Now they won't be able to do it as easily and I think it's brilliant.

for a long time now you've had to show your id and care card @ hospitals etc
this was the natural next step but people will always complain about unnecessary spending especially when there are services that are short on cash

I've got a BCID and a BCDL. I got my BCID just before I shaved my head...as a reminder of what I once looked like with hair

The gov't needs to learn the difference between WANTS and NEEDS. do BC'ers really NEED a new care card? Why not just have them take their BCDL or other ID when going to the doctor to prevent fraud?!
Most if not all of carry our BCDL / BCID with us everywhere we go. I wouldn't mind these fancy changes if the provincial budget had wiggle room.

Or you can think about it the other way; most people carry their carecard with them. Most. But not all.

So if you get in an accident and get taken to a hospital but aren't carrying your carecard, it takes more time for them to get your workup. But if it's all in a single card, you end up never worrying about forgetting either one. Or rather, you have more incentive to carry both.

Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. 1 Less card to carry for me
