Important Announcement about the TickMD Program

Geneticks is disappointed to announce that the TickMD program has been shut down as of April 25th, 2022. This outcome is the result of changes to the Physician Service Agreement (PSA) between the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and Ministry of Health which substantially impacts the viability of limited virtual care programs. Under the new PSA, the billing structure for limited virtual care programs has been altered significantly, making it untenable to retain physicians for this program. Both Geneticks and our affiliate virtual care provider Casel Medical are extremely disappointed with these changes and the effects they have had on the TickMD program, access to tick-borne disease care, and virtual care as a whole.
