This is what we received from Manulife Financial in regards to online (virtual) osteopathic care. Virtual appointments are an eligible expense provided the health care practitioner is: licensed and registered in the province in which they are practicing, has an eligible qualification as determined by Manulife, and is practicing within the guidelines of their governing body. Any practitioner offering virtual care must first be licensed by their college or governing body. The college, association or governing body and the practitioner’s scope of practice must permit virtual appointments for the service being claimed
