Getting lab work orders on Maple is easy

First, send a request

Just fill out a short form about your concerns and the lab test you're looking to get — you can then either schedule an appointment or request to see a doctor in minutes. Please note that lab tests ordered will be at the doctor’s discretion based on your specific symptoms and case.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

If payment is required, visits for lab tests start at $49.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Doctors can order lab tests for many conditions — if the doctor can help, your consultation will start right away and you'll begin speaking directly over text. The doctor may also request an audio or video chat if it will help with your diagnosis.

If the doctor can't help, your visit will not start and you won't incur a charge. The doctor will let you know if you need to visit a family practice or walk-in clinic instead.

Get your blood work requisition

You can download and print the lab test requisition directly from Maple. You can then take it to any lab of your choice to do the tests at your convenience.

As soon as your results are in, we'll send you a notification — the timing typically depends on how quickly the lab can process the tests. If you require a follow-up appointment, we'll let you know.

You can schedule a consultation with your family doctor or the walk-in clinic for your follow-up, or choose to do another consultation on Maple to review the results with one of our doctors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I request my own blood work?

All blood test requests in Canada must be made through a licensed doctor. Our online doctors can request blood work 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.

What lab tests can be ordered online?

Our doctors can order diagnostic imaging, such as ultrasounds and x-rays, and tests for everything from iron levels to sexual health labs to confirm diagnosis. Please note that lab tests ordered will be at the doctor’s discretion based on your case.

How do online lab test 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?

The time to receive test results can vary from a couple of days up to two weeks. You can ask the lab for specific timing of your specific lab tests.

Can Maple doctors 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 are included in the price of your online doctor visit. If not covered by your private or provincial health plan, visits start at $49. When you take your test requisition to a lab, most lab tests are covered by your provincial health coverage.
