New benefit connects small business credit cardholders to virtual primary and mental healthcare
TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2021 /CNW/ – Business owners across Canada will now have access to Maple’s industry leading virtual care platform. This innovative collaboration, available to BMO® World Elite® Business Mastercard® and BMO® AIR MILES® World Elite® Business Mastercard® credit cardholders, is designed to meet the evolving needs of business owners with direct and on-demand access to Maple’s network of healthcare providers anytime, anywhere.
As business owners look for ways to recover and rebuild from the effects of the pandemic, staying on top of their health and wellness is an important part of the overall health of their business. This program will give credit cardholders and their families access to free virtual healthcare visits with general practitioners and mental health counsellors.
“We’re thrilled to come together with BMO and provide this unique credit card benefit to business owners,” says Amii Stephenson, Senior Director of Business Development at Maple. “This program will allow owners and their families to choose the type of care they need, save valuable time and prioritize their physical and mental health.”
Using Maple, business owners will be able to connect with a doctor, from the comfort of their home or workplace, cutting down on time spent at the walk-in clinic or emergency room for medical advice, diagnoses, prescriptions, or lab requisitions. They’ll also be able to connect with a mental health counsellor to help manage the unique pressures of being a business owner, including coping with work stress, increasing focus, improving performance and motivation, navigating personal challenges and more.
“We’re proud to bring accessible healthcare to business credit cardholders across Canada through this partnership with Maple,” said Jennifer Douglas, Head, BMO North American Retail & Small Business Payments. “Business owners are looking for benefits that can simplify their day-to-day life with value-add features and tailor-made solutions. This program will provide them with personalized healthcare at their fingertips, allowing them to prioritize both their health and business.”
