The Co-operators will provide virtual healthcare services to its group benefits clients – a service that will be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
The bilingual virtual healthcare service is being offered through a partnership with EQ Care, which was recently acquired by TELUS Health.
“We’re excited and confident that with this agreement, our plan sponsors will have access to reliable, high-quality virtual healthcare for their plan members,” said The Co-operators VP of group benefits Conor Quinn.
Quinn added that the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on The Co-operators’ plan sponsors, as they continue to keep their plan members safe.
“That’s why it’s more important than ever that patients have peace of mind knowing they have access to primary care services via a secure, made-in-Canada online platform,” the vice president noted.
“It’s a privilege to be selected as the preferred virtual healthcare provider to The Co-operators and its group benefits clients. We are committed to delivering the highest standard of service excellence that clients expect from one of the most respected names in insurance,” added EQ Care CEO Daniel Martz.
