In the last few decades, technology has advanced significantly and created opportunities for companies to improve the services and resources they provide. In your hand, or more specifically, your smartphone, there is a world of access to every service you can dream of.
Did you know that there are more than 4.5 million apps available for download worldwide? App developers are hard at work making apps for everything from shopping to gaming, to utilities, to medical services. GOeVisit is a premier medical care app available here in Canada.
Medical innovation is something Canada excels at. GOeVisit is one of those amazing medical innovations that are available for busy Canadians that need quick answers to health concerns and are looking for virtual care on the go.
Who Is Eligible to Use GOeVisit?
Every Canadian or Canadian resident who is over the age of 18 and has a provincial health card number from any province or territory is eligible to download and use the GOeVisit app or the online portal. GOeVisit can't treat children under the age of two years, however.
If you are a visitor to Canada, you can access the service for $49.95/visit while you are on Canadian soil. If you have purchased visitor health insurance for coverage during your visit, your plan may cover this medical service.
How Do I Register for GOeVisit?
To register for GOeVisit, you can do that online by clicking on their Member Registration link and entering your personal details. For each subsequent visit, you just have to enter your email address and the secure password you selected at the time of registration.
You now have full access to a virtual clinic that can advise you about health issues or prescribe treatment that will likely include a prescription.
During your virtual doctor appt, the medical practitioner may tell you to go to an in-person doctor appt. This will happen if during your online doctor visit the medical practitioner has additional concerns. This may involve having your vitals checked.
Is GOeVisit Legit?
All GOeVisit medical practitioners are fully licensed to diagnose, treat and prescribe medications for more than 450 minor illness conditions. Your medical practitioner is trained to answer any questions you may want to ask a doctor online. Your medical practitioner will diagnose the problem.

Similar to an OTN online doctor in Ontario, virtual care provided by telemedicine services with GOeVisit makes health care delivery more efficient and human while reducing pressure on hospitals. With GOeVisit you have medical help at your fingertips. Having to go out less often to deal with medical issues keeps you safer from the ongoing health concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
