Me too. But if you need to make any sort of claim (for example in England free prescriptions etc...) then they still print and use it to get the required boxes ticked and signature.
Hopefully though they can look at that too - in theory proof of eligibility should be available digitally anyway - but could at least be stored, with a expiry date for periodic review.
That said the process to apply for a HC2 which often covers prescription costs, is paper only! (and alot of paper it is too!)
