MEDIA RELEASE: CAA partners with Maple, Canada’s leading virtual healthcare platform to offer members a new benefitFebruary 2, 20222 min read
Getting medical care for you and your family just got faster and easier. CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) and Maple are proud to announce a new partnership that offers members discounted or free 24/7 online access to Canadian-licensed general practitioner and healthcare professionals.
With Maple, CAA members and their entire household can instantly connect with a general practitioner from their phone, tablet or computer and receive treatment for many common medical conditions. They simply describe their symptoms and connect with a general practitioner through text, video or audio chat. They can receive a diagnosis, prescription or, for an additional cost, a quick referral to a specialist.
“This new CAA membership benefit reinforces CAA’s mission to keep our members safe,” said Jay Woo, president & CEO, CAA Club Group. “Being a CAA member means having peace of mind wherever life takes you and we are so excited to add even more value to our members’ day-to-day lives by partnering with Maple.”
Members can use the service from anywhere, providing families the flexibility and choice to get an opinion from a Canadian-licensed general practitioner regardless of their location. Prescriptions are not available internationally.
“We’re proud to partner with CAA, an organization that shares our value of supporting Canadians, anytime, anywhere,” said Dr. Brett Belchetz, CEO and co-founder of Maple. “Using Maple, CAA members will be able to access high-quality virtual healthcare, whether they are close to home or travelling far from their regular medical care.”
The benefit is based on membership type and is available to a member’s entire household. Basic and A la Carte members and their families receive unlimited general practitioner consults per year at a 20 per cent discounted rate. CAA Plus and Corporate members receive two free general practitioner consults per year and Premier members receive five free general practitioner consults per year.
Members can begin accessing the new benefit February 1, 2022 using their CAA membership card number at www.caasco.com/maple. Maple registration is open to CAA primary account holders. Once registered, you can add family members within the Maple platform.
