What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine connects you, through video, to a doctor in real time, improving community access to health care. A Telemedicine visit is just like a regular visit with a doctor, only the doctor you will be seeing and speaking with is on a monitor. At Appletree, you are speaking to a real live doctor from our network. Just like a regular doctor’s appointment, your Telemedicine visit will be private and confidential. It can only be seen and heard by the health care professionals involved.
Prepare for your visit
Prior to your visit, please review our list of eligible Telemedicine services.
Please visit our wait time tool in advance for up to date wait times. We appreciate your time and as such we update our wait times every 30 minutes to provide the highest accuracy possible. High volumes at times may result in registration closing earlier than the hours posted. We encourage patients to check back with us regularly or go to the next closest location that is convenient to them.

As part of the province’s telehealth program, Ontario residents’ telemedicine appointments are covered by OHIP as long as you have your valid OHIP card with you.
If you are not covered by OHIP, the cost is $75. Most private health benefits will either cover the cost upfront or reimburse you for your visit. Out-of-province Canadians can contact their provincial health care office for possible reimbursement. Policies vary by province.
Provided you have your guard.me insurance card and photo identification, the telemedicine clinic can charge guard.me directly for covered expenses. Please bring an additional method of payment for any costs not directly covered.
