What is a VJ7 / VJ8 error code – Stale Dated Claim?

Stale dated claims are claims that are submitted to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) after the allowable billing period. In other words, these claims are submitted too late and are considered invalid for payment by OHIP.

Submitting stale dated claims can result in significant financial losses for healthcare providers, as they may miss out on valuable revenue that they are entitled to. Moreover, it can also negatively impact patient care and overall operational efficiency.

To avoid such issues, healthcare providers need to ensure that they submit claims within the appropriate billing period. This can be a daunting task, particularly for practices that handle large volumes of claims.
