RWAM Insurance Administrators – one of Canada’s largest third-party administrators of group benefits – has formed a partnership with telemedicine provider EQ Care.
Through the partnership, RWAM’s members can access EQ Care’s virtual healthcare platform, which is available in both English and French. The platform hosts virtual healthcare services such as medical consultation sessions, medication prescribing, and triage.
In addition, EQ Care’s online platform will allow group benefits members to access mental health specialists. Services such as Virtual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (vCBT) and Digital Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (dCBT) will be offered through the platform, and will be paired with interactive exercises in between counselling sessions.
“There is no doubt that virtual healthcare services are gaining significant attention at a time like this and could become a staple of any complete benefits suite. The focus on employee wellness and access to care continues to be at the forefront of benefit discussions, and may root as part of the new normal,” commented RWAM Insurance Administrators CEO Carole Yari.
“Gaining the confidence of Canadian ground-breakers in the third-party administration space is incredibly validating for our team as we work tirelessly to exceed expectations in the benefits industry,” said EQ Care CEO Daniel Martz. “RWAM Insurance’s history of innovation and commitment to personalized, superior service makes this partnership a logical fit, and one that will further help to relieve pressure on the public healthcare system at a critical time.”
