Maple Virtual Care FAQs

Maple is safe and effective for common, non-emergency issues.

If you believe you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room.

Maple nurse practitioners can treat many conditions virtually, including but not limited to: abrasions, acne, allergies, bacterial vaginosis, bites and stings, body aches, bronchitis, bruises, cough, dehydration, diarrhea, earache, erectile dysfunction, fever, flu, frostbite, headaches and migraines, hives, insomnia, itchy eyes, lice, medication refills, mild lacerations, nasal congestion, nausea, pinkeye, respiratory infections, sexually transmitted infections, sinus infections, skin infections, sore throat, sprains and strains, travel medications, urinary tract infections, vomiting, yeast infections and many more.
Yes. Maple is a CAA Member benefit for yourself and any eligible dependents (under one shared account). Eligible dependents are anyone in your household who is either a spouse, a child under 18, or an elderly dependent for whom you have power of attorney for medical decision-making. This also could include children between the ages of 18-25, if they are still considered a dependent for health benefits purposes and they live in the household. Eligible dependents can be added to your account at any time by clicking the “patients” tab and certifying that you are the legal guardian, power of attorney, representative of the custodian, or have another form of legal authority for medical decisions for the individual.
Yes, your personal health information is completely private and you always retain complete control of it. Your session is protected by a comprehensive security infrastructure and stringent data policies. Check out Maple’s Privacy Policy for a more in-depth description.
Maple nurse practitioners can prescribe medications during your consultation. Once you accept a prescription, you’ll have the option to pick it up from any pharmacy in Canada or we’ll deliver it right to your door at no additional cost.
Maple is not intended for medical emergencies. If you believe you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room. If you require narcotics or controlled medications, our nurse practitioners cannot legally prescribe these on Maple.
Yes. Think of Maple as the connecting platform between you and nurse practitioners. Just like an in-person visit, the nurse practitioner is responsible for assessing your situation, understanding your medical history, asking you questions about your symptoms and providing treatment accordingly. If the nurse practitioner is not able to help on Maple, they will let you know to visit a clinic or a hospital instead.
No. While nurse practitioners on Maple can help with many common medical requests, the service is not intended to replace the care of a family physician. Maple strongly advocates for all patients to have a relationship with a family doctor. Maple can act as a helpful stopgap for those that do not have one, and for those that do, Maple can help provide a way to manage urgent primary care issues that arise when you cannot get in to see your family general practitioner.
