Frequently Asked Questions
What is a lab test requisition form?
A lab test requisition form is used by healthcare professionals to request laboratory tests such as urine or blood testing.
Do lab requisitions expire?
A lab requisition form is valid until the expiry date indicated by the ordering doctor or healthcare practitioner, up to a maximum of six months from your first visit.
After six months, you will need to return to your doctor or healthcare provider for a new standing order requisition if repeated testing is still required.
Can I request my own blood work without a doctor referral?
All blood work requisitions in Canada must be made through a licensed doctor. Our online doctors can provide blood test requisitions on your behalf at their discretion, based on what they decide is medically appropriate. Please note that we’re not able to guarantee that the doctor will order any specific tests.
Why are lab tests unavailable in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia?
Health authorities and lab regulators in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have issued restrictions on how lab tests can be ordered in the province. In some cases, they have imposed separate fees for tests ordered privately, and in other cases, they may not honour the lab requisition altogether.
We have paused test ordering in these provinces to avoid challenges for patients in the lab requisition process. We continue to work with key stakeholders in each province to understand how and when we can resume this important service for Maple patients in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Are there any restrictions on lab testing if I have sponsored coverage through a corporate offering or my employer?
No, there are no restrictions. Online lab test requisition forms are currently available in all provinces for patients who have access to Maple through their employer, school, membership plan, or other benefits provider. This includes patients in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia at this time.
What laboratory tests can be ordered online?
Our doctors can order diagnostic imaging such as ultrasounds and x-rays, and they can also order lab work online for everything from iron levels to sexual health to confirm a diagnosis. Please note that lab requisitions in Canada will be at the doctor’s discretion based on your case.
How do online lab tests requisitions work?
During your visit, your doctor will determine if you need further testing and will give you a requisition form for the tests. You can then print the form and take it to any lab that’s convenient for you.
The results will be sent to your Maple account and you can either download them and take them to your own doctor, or request another online visit for a Maple doctor to review the results with you.
How long does it take to get blood test results?
Results can take up to two weeks to be processed and uploaded to your Maple account. If you haven’t received a notification about your lab results within this timeframe, please contact our Customer Support team.
Can doctors on Maple help me analyze my lab results?
Absolutely! Once your results are in, simply request a visit and you’ll be matched with a doctor who can review the results with you and help with any next steps.
Do I have to pay extra for lab tests?
Lab test requisitions (e.g. urine or blood testing) are included in the price of your online doctor consultation. If this isn’t covered by your private or provincial health plan, consultations start at $49. However, when you take your requisition to a lab, most lab tests are covered by your provincial health coverage.
What is Maple?
With Maple, you can start talking to a doctor to get a lab test requisition as needed. We’re a healthcare app for fast, convenient, 24/7 access to Canadian-licensed doctors.
You simply log in, tap a button to request a consultation, and we’ll connect you with a doctor via live text, audio, or video.
We also offer access to many specialists online, from dermatologists to endocrinologists. While you’d typically have to wait months to see one in person, there’s no waitlist or referral needed to speak with a Canadian-licensed specialist on Maple.
