TELUS Health MyCare Terms and Conditions
TELUS grants you a personal, revocable, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to permit you to use the Platform, including downloading and installing the App on your personal mobile phone device for the purpose of accessing the Platform Services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
As a condition of your use of the Platform, you warrant that: (1) you have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence (except as otherwise provided in “Availability to Minors” below); (2) you possess the legal authority to create a binding legal obligation; (3) you will use the Platform in accordance with these Terms and Conditions; (4) all information supplied by you on the Platform is true, accurate, current and complete; and (5) if you are accessing or using the Platform on behalf of another person or a corporate entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind such person or entity to these Terms and Conditions.
The Platform is provided solely (the “Permitted Use”) to: (1) give you access to any services offered to you through the Platform, including access to the Health Services provided by Healthcare Practitioners; (2) if applicable, facilitate any payments from you to TELUS in respect of your use of the Platform or the receipt of any services through the Platform; and (3) provide feedback and otherwise communicate with TELUS in connection with any of the foregoing.
TELUS retains the right to deny access to anyone to the Platform or the Platform Services it offers, at any time and in its sole discretion, if TELUS deems that you have used the Platform in any manner contrary to the Permitted Use or if you have violated any of the terms of this Terms and Conditions.
Health and Wellness Services
The Platform Services enable you to obtain access to healthcare professionals, which may include nurse practitioners, nurses, mental health counsellors, psychologists, dietitians, and physicians (“Healthcare Practitioners”) and other professionals (“Wellness Practitioners”) as they become available, by video or audio appointments for consultations, and to receive related healthcare, professional and administrative support services virtually or in-person at one of our clinic locations (hereinafter referred to as the “Health and Wellness Services”, which includes both Insured Health Services and Premium Health Services as defined below).
Where applicable, Healthcare Practitioners and Wellness Practitioners on the Platform are licensed or accredited to practice by their applicable regulated health profession by the applicable regulatory authority in the province or territory of Canada where they practice. For greater certainty, you will be provided with access to any consultations, at no cost to you, with Healthcare Practitioners provided through the App that are publicly funded by provincial Healthcare insurance plans (“Insured Health Services”) and any payment to TELUS for the use of the App is for access to the services of Healthcare Practitioners and Wellness Practitioners made available through the App that are not Insured Health Services (“Premium Health and Wellness Services”)
Healthcare Practitioners may prescribe medication to you and can direct prescriptions to the pharmacy or other dispensing location of your choosing. You should report any medication reactions, side effects or other adverse events to your family physician or, if you do not have one, to the nearest walk-in clinic or emergency room or call 911 if any reaction is an emergency situation.
Healthcare Practitioners and Wellness Practitioners are independent of TELUS (and independent of our Platform Partner) and are solely responsible for the provision of Health and Wellness Services to you. The relationship between you and the Healthcare Practitioner providing Health and Wellness Services is a patient-practitioner relationship. TELUS is not party to that relationship as it relates to the delivery of such Health and Wellness Services and is not engaged in the practice of medicine, the practice of nursing or the practice of any other regulated health profession, for the purpose of providing Health and Wellness Services in your use of the Platform. Neither TELUS or any other party associated with TELUS (other than the applicable Healthcare Practitioner or Wellness Practitioner) are liable for any Health Services provided to you by Healthcare Practitioners or Wellness Practitioners in your use of the Platform.
We do not guarantee the availability of any particular Healthcare Practitioner at any particular time. We will do what we can to arrange a consultation with a Healthcare Practitioner as soon as possible, but do not guarantee to offer consultations within a particular time.
Please note that interaction with Healthcare Practitioners through the App is not intended to take the place of appointments with your regular primary care provider. If you do not have an established relationship with a primary care provider, you are encouraged to develop one. You should seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by the Practitioner. With your consent, we will provide your family physician with a report about the Health Services that you receive through the App. So your family physician can take into consideration these Health Services, including any prescriptions, it is always advisable that you advise your physician about the Health Services you receive, including the issues that caused you to request them. The App enables you to choose for a summary of your Services to be sent to a physician of your choice.
You can report a complaint relating to Health Services provided by a Healthcare Practitioner on the Platform by contacting (i) TELUS at the email address provided below, and/or (ii) the professional regulatory college(s) in the province(s) where the Healthcare Practitioner is licensed.
The Platform provides access to various health and wellness informational tools, including (i) Symptom Checker; (ii) Healthcheck (iii) Monitor and (iv) additional features and tools provided from time to time, as further described in the App (“Information Tools”). The Information Tools are available for use at any time, independently of the services provided by either Healthcare Practitioners or Wellness Practitioners.
The Information Tools provide health and wellness information and not medical advice, diagnosis and/or treatment. If you choose to submit information about your symptoms using the Information Tools, the information returned to you is general health information and no Healthcare Practitioner is involved in providing or reviewing the information. Our Information Tools are not a substitute for a doctor or other healthcare professional. Where the information returned indicates that the symptoms entered suggest further medical advice may be necessary, you acknowledge that you are responsible for seeking such advice from your family doctor or other medical professional. You should not take or stop taking any action (such as taking medicines) based on information from our Information Tools. We make no warranties in relation to the output of our Information Tools.
The Information Tools should not be used in an emergency. In the case of an emergency you should contact the emergency services and/or your doctor in the usual way. Certain Information Tools may provide statistical risks of disease which may cause distress. You should not use this feature if you do not wish to learn such information.
Please note that:
- Healthcheck is not suitable for pregnant women or for users with long term medical conditions or disabilities that may have different needs or risks shown.
- Monitor is not suitable for pregnant women or for users with serious, trauma or life threatening emergencies.
- The Symptom Checker is not suitable if you have the following symptoms: (i) severe, heavy or crushing chest pain, which may move to the jaw, neck, arm, or back, or be associated with sweating, shortness of breath or nausea; (ii) signs of a stroke, which may include facial weakness, inability to hold both arms up, or difficulty speaking; or (iii) severe breathing problems.
Certain Information Tools provide basic self-monitoring features. We do not update or monitor the data held in your account nor accept responsibility for ensuring that all activity through the App is logged for monitoring. It is your responsibility to ensure the data stored in Monitor is current and up to date.
Information Tools may make use of data feeds from third party providers which you optionally provide access to in accordance with the TELUS Health MyCare Privacy Commitment. For example if you use Monitor, you can connect to other apps such as the Apple Health App, Fitbit and Garmin. You will be asked for your consent for TELUS Health MyCare to read the data from any of these apps connected to it. You acknowledge and agree that available data feeds may vary from time to time, that we make no guarantee that any particular data feed will be available or available at a particular time, and that data feeds may require your authorization in order to be accessible to you via the App.
Information Tools may display certain information relating to you derived from data stored for you (for example, body mass index) and recognized guidelines or general wellbeing articles. You should note however that any such display or information provided is based on generic data and assumptions and is not designed to be and should not be used for personalized advice. Any information provided by any Information Tools should therefore be treated as a general guide and is not a substitute for personal medical advice or diagnosis. It will in addition be based on a number of assumptions that may or may not be accurate or applicable to you. No responsibility is taken for any action or omission that you may take based on in connection with or in reliance upon any information shown in the Information Tools.
Consent to Treatment
By accessing and using the Platform to access Health Services or Administrative Services, you consent to be treated by Healthcare Practitioners. Healthcare Practitioners may ask you questions about your personal health history, present condition or symptoms, and any course of treatment or medication that has been prescribed to you. Healthcare Practitioners may also conduct a visual examination of you virtually and may ask you to conduct certain self-assessments such as taking your temperature or blood pressure. You may withdraw your consent to receive Health Services at any time by ending your consultation with the Healthcare Practitioner.
In prescribing or communicating any diagnosis, course of treatment or medication to you, the Healthcare Practitioner will seek your informed consent which requires the Healthcare Practitioner to explain the diagnosis, treatment and risks and side effects associated therewith. You are encouraged to ask questions of the Healthcare Practitioner regarding any diagnosis, treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended to you to ensure that you understand the diagnosis, treatment and risk of side effects associated therewith. If you are not satisfied with the explanation or information provided by the Healthcare Practitioner regarding any course of treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended for you, you should not follow it or you should seek a second opinion from a physician or other Healthcare practitioner that is not affiliated with TELUS. With your consent, we will make an audio recording of your healthcare consultation to help our clinical management team audit the quality of our healthcare service. Details of how we protect and use such recordings are set out in the TELUS Health MyCare Privacy Commitment and you can withdraw your consent at any time.
Note that a Healthcare Practitioner reserves the right to assess whether a person has the capacity to provide consent to his or her Health Services treatment on a case-by-case basis.

If you are between 16 and the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, you must have the permission of a parent or guardian and they must read and accept the Terms and Conditions on your behalf prior to creating a User Account. For access to Premium Health and Wellness Service, you must also have the permission of a parent or guardian for use of their credit card for the payment of any related Fees.

The Health and Wellness Services may also be available for use by children at the discretion of the Healthcare or Wellness Practitioner, but the user and User Account for all patients under the age of 16 must be the patient’s parent or legal guardian. If you register as the parent or legal guardian on behalf of a minor, you are fully responsible for complying with these Terms and Conditions.

The Terms and Conditions set out under the ‘Consent to Treatment’ and ‘Privacy’ sections apply to minors who receive Health Services and Wellness Services.
You must be at least 16 years of age to use the Symptom Checker and Monitor. However, the Symptom Checker provides health information for all age groups which means that someone over 16 can use the product on behalf of all age groups. You must be at least 18 years of age to use Healthcheck.
The Content provided through the Platform (except as may be directly communicated to you by Healthcare Practitioners) is not medical or clinical advice. The Content and the Information Tools were not designed or personalised for children or for you specifically. TELUS does not make any endorsement, representation or warranty regarding the safety, appropriateness or effectiveness of the Content, the Information Tools or of any particular diagnosis or treatment communicated to you by the Healthcare Practitioners.
The Platform is made available for use in Canada only. We are not responsible to comply with laws outside of Canada governing access to our Platform Services.
Please review the TELUS Health MyCare Privacy Commitment (https://www.telus.com/en/health/about-telus-health/privacy/mycare), which describes the manner in which we collect, use, store and disclose your PI and PHI, and which is hereby incorporated into and forms a part of these Terms and Conditions.
By accessing or using the Platform, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your PI and PHI as set out in the TELUS Health MyCare Privacy Commitment.
Virtual care is both the practice of medicine and a way to provide or assist in the provision of patient care at a distance using information and communication technologies, and includes the delivery of the Health Services via the Platform (“Virtual Care”).
In addition to the material risks and side effects that may be associated with a course of treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended for you, there are potential material risks that are specifically associated with Virtual Care and which may adversely impact the ability of the Healthcare Practitioner to provide Health Services, including but not limited to (a) poor quality audio-video connections due to remote locations or other network limitations that may limit the ability of the Healthcare Practitioner to complete the appointment virtually, (b) delays in evaluation or treatment resulting from similar technology failures, (c) limitations on access to your personal health records maintained outside the Platform (i.e., by your family physician or other primary care health professional), which may result in adverse drug interactions, allergic reactions, or other judgment errors (you should always advise the Healthcare Practitioner and any dispensing pharmacists of all medications you are taking and any allergies you may have), and (d) unauthorized access to, collection, use or disclosure of your PI and/or PHI due to a security protocol breach or failure. By consenting to receive Health Services using the Platform, you acknowledge and understand these potential material risks associated with Virtual Care. Additionally, if the Healthcare Practitioner forms the opinion that Virtual Care is not appropriate in the circumstances, the Healthcare Practitioner will redirect you to appropriate care.
You understand, acknowledge and agree that TELUS does not control, and accept no responsibility for, any content passing through the Internet, the availability of the Internet generally, or for Internet connectivity. You understand, acknowledge and agree that the Internet is inherently risky even if reasonable security measures are taken. You understand, acknowledge and agree that TELUS cannot and do not guarantee the security of data transmitted over the Internet or public networks in connection with your use of the Platform but has implemented security controls, as well as, reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, loss, modification and disclosure, of PI and PHI in our custody or control and adhere to generally accepted industry practices with respect to securing the transmission of data to, from and through the Platform.
Although reasonable encryption technology and other reasonable security protocols will be implemented to protect your PI and PHI and the privacy of your Virtual Care consultations with Healthcare Practitioners, you acknowledge by using the Platform that there are inherent risks to any technology that could cause security protocols to fail or be breached, which could result in the unauthorized access to, collection, use or disclosure of your PI or PHI. TELUS will notify you to the extent required by law of any breach that has resulted in the unauthorized access to, collection, use or disclosure of your PI or PHI.
You may be required to successfully sign up for a user account (the ‘User Account’) using the available interfaces within the Platform using your email address and setting up a password as login credentials in order to use the Platform and receive any Platform Services. You will keep your password secure and will not share your password with anyone else, and you will not collect or harvest any personal data of any other user of the Platform, including account names or login credentials. TELUS reserves the right to disable any User Account issued to you at any time in the event of a breach of any of your warranties, representations or obligations under these Terms and Conditions. If TELUS disables access to a User Account issued to you, you may be prevented from accessing the Platform, the Content, your account details or any User Content.
You may not assign, transfer or sublicense your User Account and these Terms and Conditions, by operation of law or otherwise, without TELUS’ prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer your User Account or these Terms and Conditions, without such consent, will be null and of no effect.
TELUS will not charge you any Fees for any Insured Health Services.
Third Party Payor
If a third party (e.g., such as an employer or supplemental health insurance provider) has arranged with TELUS to pay appointment or subscription fees for Premium Health and Wellness Service, or any portion of the subscription fee, that subscription fee adjustment will be reflected in the subscription fee that you are ultimately charged (which may result in no charge to you). Where third party coverage is terminated, you may be given the option of continuing to use the Platform so long as you pay the Fees (defined below).
TELUS may, in its sole discretion but subject to applicable laws, offer some of the Platform Services (e.g. Premium Health Services) to you for free or charge fees in accordance with its then-current fee rate(s) (the “Fee Schedule”). TELUS will notify you of the current Fee Schedule and you will pay any such applicable fees in accordance with the Fee Schedule (the “Fees”). Unless otherwise expressly indicated in the Fee Schedule, all Fees are quoted in Canadian dollars exclusive of applicable sales and value added taxes and are non-refundable and payable upon invoicing or request from TELUS. You will pay all sales and value added taxes that may be imposed in each applicable jurisdiction and will hold and save the TELUS harmless in respect of any such taxes. TELUS reserves the right to modify or implement a new pricing structure by providing you with formal notice pursuant to these Terms and Conditions.
TELUS may require you to provide the details of a current and valid credit card, debit card, PayPal account, Apple Pay, or other payment method (“Payment Method”) that is acceptable to TELUS in its sole discretion. You hereby authorize TELUS to charge any and all Fees that become due and payable to the Payment Method. You agree to pay such fees, charges and penalties (including costs and expenses related to collection by TELUS of overdue payments) as TELUS may from time to time set out in respect of late or overdue payments, or declined or unsuccessful Payment Method transactions. By giving us your credit card information, you authorize TELUS to charge the applicable card the amount and you represent and warrant that you are the cardholder of the applicable card. If your card is rejected by the card issuer, your order will not be processed and TELUS will have no obligation to fulfill your order.
These Terms and Conditions will take effect on the date and at the time you select “I AGREE” when presented with the opportunity to view and agree to these Terms and Conditions.
TELUS may immediately terminate, or suspend, these Terms and Conditions, or cease providing the Platform and Platform Services, at any time: (i) if you do not comply with these Terms and Conditions; (ii) if necessary to prevent threats to the privacy, security or integrity of your data or the data of any other user(s); (iii) upon termination of the agreement between TELUS and the third party payor that is paying your subscription fee; (iv) to comply with any applicable law or court or order and/or (v) for any reason, including events not in our control.
