We provide users with an online health card validation Service (â€œServiceâ€) to help improve accuracy and efficiency in your health care clinic.

The Service does not provide medical, financial, legal, or other miscellaneous advice. All information on this Site is provided â€œAS-ISâ€ and is solely for informational purposes. Validation checks eligibility and the health card number but does not guarantee payment of the claim since payment is dependent on additional factors.
