eClaims can be used for virtual services 1.
Only the following professionals can submit claims for virtual consultations: Physiotherapist, Optometrist, Dietitian, Naturopathic Doctor, Psychologist, Speech Language Pathologist, Physical Rehabilitation Therapist
Only offer virtual consults for the services approved by your college or governing body
Select your primary practice location as the servicing location when submitting a claim for virtual services
Participating eClaims insurers are treating claims for virtual services in the same way as physical visits. If you experience an issue with a submitted claim, please contact the insurer directly. Insurer contact information is available on our eClaims resources page

Hope you're staying safe and healthy during this challenging time.
