It depends on the province.
In order for Maple’s services to be covered, the province must have public coverage of virtual telemedicine visits, and criteria which aligns with our system.
We charge a fee for our services only when they are not covered by provincial health plans. We’d love to be eligible for public coverage consistently across Canada and we’re working hard to ensure Maple is included in provincial coverage as soon as legislation allows.
Public coverage is currently available for certain Maple services in:
