Lumeca provides on-demand access to Saskatchewan licensed doctors and nurses through audio and video for residents of Saskatchewan with a valid healthcard.
No. Lumeca has received no funding from the government of Saskatchewan. Doctors are paid for their services by Lumeca via the Medical Services Branch. Just like how most medical clinics operate.
Lumeca is available for the approximately 1 in 5 people that do not have a family doctor or for those who are unable to get in contact with their family doctor. We value and recognize the importance of the patient doctor relationship. We are actively working on our platform to support patients to connect with their own family doctor, and vice versa.
Telemedicine and virtual care are good for a variety of low acuity medical conditions. If you feel your condition is an emergency, you should call 911.
If you are in a life threatening emergency, call 911.
Currently, Lumeca is available for Saskatchewan residents.
