Winnipeg, MB, February 2, 2022 – Getting medical care for you and your family just got faster and easier. CAA Manitoba and Maple are proud to announce a new partnership that offers members discounted or free 24/7 online access to Canadian-licensed nurse practitioners.
With Maple, CAA members and their entire household can instantly connect with a nurse practitioner from their phone, tablet or computer and receive treatment for many common medical conditions. They simply describe their symptoms and connect with a nurse practitioner through text, video or audio chat. They can receive a diagnosis, prescription or, for an additional cost, a quick referral to a specialist.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this valuable new benefit to CAA members in Manitoba,” said Tim Scott, president, CAA Manitoba. “This new partnership reinforces CAA’s mission to keep our members safe and to add value to their day-to-day lives wherever they are.”
Members can use the service from anywhere, providing families the flexibility and choice to get an opinion from a Canadian-licensed nurse 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. Classic and A la Carte members and their families receive unlimited nurse practitioner consults per year at a 20 per cent discounted rate. CAA Plus members receive two free nurse practitioner consults per year and Premier members receive five free nurse practitioner consults per year.
Members can begin accessing the new benefit February 1, 2022 using their CAA membership card number at www.caamanitoba.ca/maple. Maple registration is open to CAA primary account holders. Once registered, you can add family members within the Maple platform.
