Virtual Care - Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay for the HPV Virtual Care appointment?
Virtual Care services are covered under the OHIP program for all Ontarians with valid OHIP health card through a pilot project with Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN). When creating your profile for your Virtual Care appointment, you will be asked to provide your OHIP card number and version code.
Those without OHIP coverage will be asked to pay for the visit. Standard service fees are available as you book your appointment and may be eligible for reimbursement by most company benefit plans. Fees are listed on our appointment booking site and clearly communicated to you prior to booking your visit.
Are the appointments with Doctors or Nurses?
After the visit, will I have access to the details of my visit?
