Refers to all persons registered in the Manitoba Health Services Insurance Plan. This includes all persons who reside in the province of Manitoba, as well as new Manitobans arriving from another province (eligible for coverage after a waiting period of up to 3 months), new Manitobans from another country (eligible for coverage immediately if they have landed immigrant status), and foreign citizens holding a one-year or more work permit. Manitoba residents not covered include armed forces, RCMP personnel and federal penitentiary inmates.

NOTE: Prior to April 1, 2013 members of the RCMP living in Manitoba were insured federally and not included in the Manitoba Health Insurance Registry data. After this date members of the RCMP living in Manitoba are covered by Manitoba Health and included in the Insurance Registry data.
