How It Works
Your request is now submitted to MOHLTC and a response code (i.e. a one or two-digit number) is returned upon successful transaction.
The response is colour coded as green, yellow or red depending on the eligibility status of a health card. If you hover over the question mark beside the code, you will see the code description.
If you have opted for Fee Service eligibility verification, a fee service response code and last date of service will be returned too.
For information on the response codes please refer to the MOHLTC Health Card Validation Reference Manual.
