Your GP may direct you to another service, for example a lab for diagnostic tests, or a physiotherapist. They may also refer you to a specialist if that is needed. You will have to pay for these services separately.

If the GP knows that your ailment cannot be managed with a phone or video consultation, they will direct you to the nearest ER facility.

Please check the terms of your travel insurance before making an appointment. This will tell you whether you can claim the cost of your GP appointment and any other medical treatment you receive in Canada. Healthcare in Canada is not free and we will ask you to pay up front for your GP consultation. All visitors to Canada should have travel health insurance.

You can pay for your GP appointment securely online. The cost of a 15-minute telephone or video consultation with one of our GPs is $120.

You will need a quiet, private place to take the call with your GP. Note down any questions you have for your GP. It will also help to have any medications you are taking – including over-the-counter meds, and herbal medicines.
