Group benefits provider BeniPlus Inc., announced that it is entering into a partnership agreement with virtual medical service provider, Tia Health. Under the partnership agreement, Tia Health will offer virtual medical services to all new and existing clients of BeniPlus.

Stephen DeKuyper, co-founder and president of BeniPlus says he expects virtual health care will become more common in the Canadian market in the future. “We want our clients to be able to offer this high-value added benefit to their employees and we like the unique model that Tia Health is providing,” he says. Tia Health says it is bringing solutions which have traditionally been available only to large corporations, to companies of any size. (BeniPlus predominantly serves small businesses in Canada.) The platform will reportedly provide employees with doctor’s appointments, other family appointments and prescription delivery.
