What is Telemedicine?
A Telemedicine visit is just like a regular visit with a doctor, only you will connect with the doctor via video consultation. A medically-trained Telemedicine Assistant will provide on-site intake services and will ask you some preliminary questions to prepare you for the video consultation with the doctor. Once ready, the Telemedicine Assistant will connect you with the doctor and your private and confidential consultation will begin with both health care professionals present in the exam room.

Prepare for your visit
Each time you visit us, please bring a list of all medications you are taking. Plus, here are some quick tips for our students:
Please bring your Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) card. If you have the OHIP card without a photo, please bring a card with photo identification.
Please bring your guard.me insurance card, along with photo identification (e.g., passport) for identity verification. Please also bring a means of payment should there be additional costs.
Please bring photo identification and a means of payment.
As part of the province’s telehealth program, Ontario residents’ telemedicine appointments are covered for by the OHIP as long as you have your 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 the 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 means of payment for any costs not directly covered.
