This website lets you validate OHIP health cards in real-time.

The updated Optometry SOB is in effect September 1, 2023:

When validating new code V407, you will either get Response Code 101 or 201 indicating whether the patient has had an exam in the last 12 months.

Validating V406 for a patient who had an exam in the last 18 months will return Response Code 201 reflecting the new rule (it used to be 12-months).


Watch how it works:



Simple • Fast • Efficient

♦ Unlimited Validations 

♦ Validate multiple health cards with 1 click

♦ Adjusts to any screen size: phone, tablet or computer


IVR on phone  vs.  ohipHCV


With IVR, you need to enter your PIN each time you call, then listen to the automated messages and respond by pressing phone keys, look up the numeric value for the version code and the service code, all to get to listen at the end to a single validation response. Then need to write it down!


With, easy login, then simply type:

1- Health #

2- Version code

3- Pick 1 of the service codes (optional)

and instantly get the Complete Validation displayed on the screen. 

This saves you time and reduces the chance of human error. 


The Advantage

♦ Get the Full validation Faster than any other similar service

♦ Designed to be ultra light on resources. Stays up on your device all day without slowing it down

♦ No payment information is required. All validations on this website are free for solo physicians
