In an effort to protect Canadians and ensure health care is easily accessible, many provinces have approved coverage for virtual health care. These services along with those available through People Corporation provide a broad range of solutions.
This guide is designed to help you navigate the virtual health services available including, virtual primary care and care management, physiotherapy, pharmacy, and health coaching. These solutions provide access to the treatment patients need from the comfort and safety of their homes.
Certain services are available through each province at no cost. Patients must be covered under a provincial health care plan and will have to provide their health card number when they call for services.
Provincial health authorities have adjusted acceptable billing to allow for virtual appointments during the pandemic. Across Canada, patients can reach their primary care physicians for telephonic and virtual appointments.
Online and virtual health care offerings are also available for those who don’t have a family doctor.
Many of you are looking for immediate supports for your employees around emotional issues, isolation, anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. We recognize the importance of employee mental health and have created industry-leading solutions.
People Connect utilizes the coverage provided under your group benefits plan paramedical coverage making it easy to get professional and affordable therapy. There is no charge for the insured’s first appointment. Plan members can claim the costs of additional sessions under the paramedical coverage of their group benefits plan.

Private, plan sponsor-paid options have gained momentum and popularity since the outbreak of COVID-19.
Interest in virtual care has highlighted the demand for a service that’s consistent across the country and isn’t dependent on family doctors’ availability and willingness to do virtual appointments.
People Corporation has developed People Connect Total Health, a unique and proprietary end-to-end virtual solution from medical consultation and mental health support, to medication delivery. It provides plan members access to virtual health care professionals, therapists, diagnostic tools, psychiatric collaboration, and a digital pharmacy that provides home delivery. Through our partnerships Telus Health Virtual Care and Maple, we’re able to provide two options within People Connect Total Health.
Maple is a physician-only virtual health app. Maple offers an upfront online assessment, followed by virtual appointments with doctors. This includes People Connect, our enhanced mental health module that provides access to therapists, diagnostic tools, and psychiatric collaboration. This is an option for organizations that want a doctor-led version. Contact your People Corporation consultant for more information or contact email@example.com
